Media

The Open Forum for CSO Development Effectiveness is a unique space for CSOs (Civil Society Organisations) worldwide to engage in a global and fully participatory process towards defining and introducing a International Framework of mutually shared development effectiveness principles.

Given that the Open Forum process is both highly consultative and unique on the international stage, it has generated interest at the national, regional and international levels and created awareness of CSO development effectiveness around the world.

Below you will find links to press releases, press coverage and other media content on the Open Forum and its activities.

We also invite you to consult the Open Forum communication pack where you will find a collection of images and presentations to illustrate the Open Forum process and outcomes.

For any questions and media enquiries, we invite you to write to the Open Forum Secretariat.
