Welcome to TACSO’s Forum for Regional CSO networks in the IPA Countries
TACSO’s Forum for Regional CSO Networks is a space where the following values should be promoted and respected:
• professional communication,
• respect for different and opposing opinions,
• cooperation,
• positive competition,
• Discussions that will steer positive and concrete outputs and outcomes.

The TACSO Regional Office (RO) in cooperation with the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC), organised the Regional Conference for Regional CSO’s Networks (RCSON) in the IPA Countries in December 2011, with the purpose to bring the Regional CSO Networks from the Western Balkans and Turkey together, to examine upcoming prospects for their support mainly from the EU, and to discuss their needs in a wider, face-to-face forum.
A starting point for discussion concerning the needs of the RCSON was the Report on Regional CSOs Networks that was developed by the TACSO RO in August 2011. This report provides information on existing networks in the region, their capacities, needs, and provides some recommendations to stakeholders such as: TACSO, the EU, governments, and networks. This was the first report of this kind in the region.
After summarizing the issues recommendations and open questions identified by the participants at the conference, TACSO concluded that there is an evident need for further support to the RCSON by ensuring a continuation of the dialogue among them at the regional level.
Considering aforementioned conclusions, the TACSO RO has decided to proceed with the creation of a Forum for the Regional CSO Networks.
The overall objective of the Forum is to contribute to the capacity building of the regional CSOs networks on issues of consolidation, harmonisation and streamlining of CSOs’ interests concerning policies, capacities, EU trends and best practices thus contributing to inter- and intra networks learning.
The purpose of the Forum is to enable sharing of information and experiences among regional CSOs networks, i.e. knowledge management.
Expected results:
1. EU trends disseminated more coherently and with a wider outreach
2. Best practices and lessons learned related to the work of the regional CSOs networks (but applicable to national networks too) further examined, recognised, and shared across the region
3. Contributed to clear assessment/identification of needs for further capacity development of regional CSOs networks
4. Greater critical mass of drivers for policy change mobilised
