RESULTS

As CSF we believe that Sustainability of civil society and CSOs is about their ability to remain engaged in activities that are relevant to their constituencies. This will be achieved by focusing on institutional capacity building as opposed to just giving grants, facilitating partnerships between existing institutions, taking time to build trust and long-standing relationships, developing greater dialogue between citizens and government and a gradual long-term vision for capacity development. In doing so, CSOs will help build a more inclusive, democratic and pro-poor governance environment in South Sudan. This is in line with the CSF objective that civil society and CSOs need more than just funding in order to be sustainable.
