STATE OF CIVIL SOCIETY REPORT 2014 The State of Civil Society Report 2014: Reimagining Global Governance
draws on contributions from more than 30 of the world’s leading experts
on civil society as well as on inputs from our members, partners,
supporters and others in the global CIVICUS alliance. The varied
contributions highlight changing global political dynamics, an emerging
disillusionment with global frameworks of governance and a fundamental
lack of accountability within international decision-making.
The executive summary is also available in French and Spanish.
The State of Civil Society Report 2014 also includes a scorecard
that assesses the quality of civil society-intergovernmental
organisation engagement. The next phase of the scorecard will seek to
evaluate levels of civil society participation and engagement in the
Open Working Group (OWG) on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). More
on this soon!

THE ‘ROAD TO 2015: OPEN DATA FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT’ CAMPAIGN
A new campaign ‘Road to 2015’ has been launched recently by Publish
What You Pay on open data and transparency in the post-2015 development
agenda. The ‘Road to 2015’ campaign is about harnessing the power of
open data for sustainable development. Donors
who have committed to publishing aid data need to deliver on that
promise and open development cooperation data must be an integral part
of the post-2015 development agenda. Transparency and accountability
matter to all development actors, and there is space for everyone to
get involved in the Road to 2015 campaign. Find out more atwww.roadto2015.org.
11 CRITICAL OUTCOMES THAT THE ICESDF REPORT MUST INCLUDE

mechanisms for finance. The Report of the Committee is a strategically
important report as it will feed into the Third Conference on Financing
for Development in July 2015 and the financing discussions of the
Post-2015 framework and Sustainable Development Goals. Consult CONCORD position on what outcomes the report needs to have available here.
