Cooperation of civil society sector and government: foreign models

On 11 March 2017 “Uluchay” Social-Economic Innovation Center organized a training session on “Cooperation of civil society sector and government: foreign models” with the participation of representatives of civil society organizations, local authorities, and government representatives.

The training has been provided by Vugar Bayramov – Chairman of the Center for Economic and Social Development (CESD) partner organization of the Action. The training aimed to increase the knowledge and awareness of local stakeholders, including CSOs, authorities, and government representatives, on using innovative tools and approaches of other countries for cooperation. With the participation of 28 stakeholders, training sessions have supported learning new methodologies from different countries, specifically from the USA, United Kingdom, Turkey, New Zealand, Brazil, India, and Estonia. Covering a more comprehensive range of countries with different specifics helped to get in-depth and diverse approaches creating possible cooperation between the civil society sector and government.

Participants were able to get the necessary materials, including presentations and detailed information on provided models, as well as actively participate in question & answers sessions to discuss challenges and possible adoption of models in Azerbaijan.

The training session has been organized with the initiative of “Uluchay” Social-Economic Innovation Center within the “Enabling civil society to play a greater role in advancing socio-economic rights of vulnerable populations” project funded by the European Union supported by the UNDP. The project is implemented in cooperation with the Center for Economic and Social Development and the Sheki Regional Office of the Ministry of Justice of Azerbaijan.
