Overall, the public perception of the Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) as truthful monitors of the Government’s work is positive and CSOs regularly contribute to decision-making processes .
In terms of applicable legal framework, the Government’s Strategy for Co-operation with Civil Society (2019-2023) and its action plan remain partially implemented and the identified shortcomings related to the current regulation of public funding to CSOs should be addressed.
Upon consultations with CSOs’ umbrella organizations, international organizations, donors and governmental institutions, the Mission identified that civil sector in Kosovo faces the following challenges:
Regarding long terms trends, CSOs generally display financial vulnerability and low sustainability of their activities. In this context, capacity building efforts, particularly in the areas of advocacy and partnership building remain necessary.
In light of this, the OSCE Mission in Kosovo (the Mission) seeks to engage a local expert (the expert) with sound professional experience in the civil society sector, including applicable legal framework for developing and implementing a capacity building programme for up to 20 locally based Kosovo CSOs.

After the completion of the capacity-building programme, the expert will submit a final report, highlighting the key findings and recommendations for future actions. The report will be presented to the Activity Manager and finalized based on the provided comments.
