Minutes from Kosovo LAG Meeting – May 2017

The meeting of the Local Advisory Group (LAG) took place on May 18, 2017. The objective of the meeting was to inform the LAG about TACSO Kosovo Office’s implemented activities and to present the programming of the upcoming European Union (EU) support to civil society in Kosovo.  

The LAG meeting agenda included: highlights of the implemented activities and TACSO Work plan 2016-2017; update on the programme of the Resource Centre in Kosovo, TACSO by the Kosovar Civil Society Foundation (KCSF); highlights on the progress of the implementation of the Government Strategy for Cooperation with Civil Society; civil society perspectives related to the priorities of the new Strategy for Cooperation with Civil Society; and update on the Civil Society Facility calls for proposals. 

Key outputs from the meeting related to civil society development were:
  • Minimum standards for public consultations should be legally sanctioned at the local level as well;
  • The issue of volunteerism should be specifically regulated by the law;
  • Procedures for public funding should be transparent and just; 
  • Objectives for contracting services by CSOs should be addressed by the upcoming strategy;
  • The strategy should be reflected in the activity of municipalities as well;
  • The strategy should prioritize youth, taking into consideration the large number of youth organisations;
  • The budget destined for CSOs should be raised simultaneously with the overall budget of the country.
