Draft - Discussion Note
Proposal for a Civil Society Initiative in the ENPI region1
The ENP Strategic Review process launched last year highlighted the need to consolidate engagement with civil society and non-state actors (NSA) in the implementation of the Neighbourhood Policy, and their involvement in policy monitoring and programming of assistance in the entire ENP region. NSAs' increased involvement would promote cooperation with national authorities and would increase national ownership of reforms and government accountability.
The current Note puts forward a proposal for main components of an ENPI Civil Society Initiative, on which the European Commission seeks an initial reaction and input from the main CSO platforms with activities in the Neighbourhood region.
