Collective process around designing a CSO Code of Conduct in the Dominican Republic

Collective process around designing a CSO Code of Conduct in the Dominican Republic

 

The design of the first CSO Code of Conduct in the Dominican Republic was conceived as a collective process and methodology since its beginning in 2016 and until its formal presentation in 2017 many steps of collective thinking and feedback on the progress to elaborate the final document which has been endorsed so far by more than 100 CSOs. This process improved both the awareness and ownership of organizations since they felt involved from the very beginning of its design. At the same time, it allowed the Reference Group which coordinated the process to enrich the Code of Conduct with the hundreds of comments, suggestions and points of view of the diverse civil society of the Dominican Republic to obtain a document which was agreed upon by most.

The Code of Conduct is a tool designed to promote efficiency, transparency and accountability. It will also benefit in increasing credibility, institutional strengthening, facilitating institutional internationalization; as well as in promoting self-sustainability.
