“The Journey from Istanbul: Evidences on the implementation of the CSO DE Principles” is a review of evidence initiated by the CPDE Working Group on CSO Development Effectiveness. The project was launched to showcase experiences, practices, and lessons learned by different organisations in performing their various mandates in terms of implementing the Istanbul Principles and promoting the concept of CSO Development Effectiveness. It highlights how CSOs have worked to improve their effectiveness following the adoption of the Istanbul Principles and the International Framework for CSO Effectiveness. Stories were gathered from 19 CSOs drawn from different sectors and in different countries, among others the Czech Republic.
