The Perception of Impact resulted as the lowest scoring dimension, although with significant differences between social impact and policy impact, with the latter being lower. Significantly, the impact of civil society in priority issues of Kosovo society is low, confirming that civil society is not sufficiently responsive to the real needs of society and its constituencies.

The External Environment does not represent a very encouraging prospect for the operation of civil society in Kosovo. Standing as one of the poorest countries in Europe with almost half of the population unemployed, Kosovo's economy is characterised by a large informal sector, and still remains largely dependent on remittances and donor aid.

The Kosovo CSI partner also compiled a Policy Action Brief that details some of the recommendations to improve the state of civil society based on the findings of the ACR.
