The Sudan Civil Society Organization Sustainability Index (CSOSI) assesses the capacity of civil society to serve as both a short-term partner in implementing development solutions and a long-term actor in ensuring that development outcomes are sustained. The CSOSI established by United States Agency for International Development (USAID) reports annually on the strength and viability of civil society organizations and describes advances and setbacks in the country’s civil society sector by examining seven key dimensions of sustainability –
- Legal environment
- Organizational capacity
- Financial viability
- Service provision
- Sectoral infrastructure
- Public image
The Country Report for Sudan is part of a larger CSOSI report for Sub-Saharan Africa and compliments similar publications covering seventy-one (71) other countries throughout the world.
We believe that this report will be a useful resource for local CSOs, government, donors, academics, and others who are trying to better understand and monitor key aspects of sustainability in the country’s CSO sector.
