The future of funding
Funding to support a thriving civil society in the Global South
Tuesday, December 13, 2016
In recent years, some funders have increased efforts to fund Southern civil society directly, but substantial challenges remain.
Meanwhile, many international civil society actors have begun to explore how they can better facilitate a shift of power and money to the South.
This report offers an introduction to some of the discussions taking place around this agenda, with a series of briefing papers to support funders who wish to consider evolving their funding practices. Although approaches differ – funding directly; devolved grantmaking; funding intermediaries – some key themes emerge.
This report is part of the Future Funding programme.
