The DFID Civil Society Partnership Review (CSPR) team will be using five lines of enquiry to structure its engagement. The fifth one is effective relationships and engagement.

Many CSOs are facing an uncertain and changing future as highlighted in Bond's Fast Forward report.

In this week's Twitter chat we will explore current relationship and engagement with DFID e.g. how are CSOs involved in programme and policy discussions; how regularly and in what format do CSOs engage with DFID staff and Ministers? Is there anything DFID could do to make the relationship more complementary, efficient and effective? How could this be done in a way that maximises the value that DFID and CSOs add?

You can join the conversation by following @bondngo and @DFID_Inclusive and using #DFIDCSPR on Twitter. Sign up below to receive a reminder and please share our tweet chat banner (below) on social media.
