CSI Reports Phase 2: 2008 - 2010

Interim Phase (2008)

After the first phase was completed, an interim phase using the same version of the methodology was implemented in early 2008 and sponsored by UNDP to focus on the state of civil society in six African countries. The methodology was then again evaluated and revised in order to develop a new phase (2008-2010) that currently takes place in 56 countries.

CSI Phase 2 (2008 – 2010)

We are now into the second phase of the CSI project, with over 50 participating countries.
