Effective CSOs' engagement in driving development agenda


The Second Africa-EU Civil Society Forum was held in Brussels on October 23-25, 2013, attended by representatives of African and European Civil Society Organizations (CSOs). Following a review of the Joint Africa-EU Strategy (JAES), adopted at the 2007 EU-Africa Lisbon Summit, which outlined a long-term shared vision of the future of Africa-EU relations in the globalized world, the Forum concluded that strengthening participation of civil society in the JAES is critical "to transforming the partnership between Africa and the EU into a more people-centered and mutually beneficial multi-stakeholder partnership, not a government-to-government project."
