CSO Platform

In 2017, RACI – in collaboration with the UN and Cablevisión Fibertel – launched the first “ODS Platform” for Argentinean Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), with the aim of democratising information about the work carried out by CSOs in the country in favour of Agenda 2030 and making it visible to key actors. The platform uses ICTs as a strategic tool with the aim to generate new partnerships, a sense of ownership and to ensure that resources are allocated efficiently.

Along with transparent annual management and accountability, it allows compliance with legal information reporting requirements; as well as support the strategic management of social organizations.

Self-assessment tool for the Global Standard for CSO Accountability

This self-assessment tool allows organisation to self-evaluate their organisations against the Global Standard for CSO Accountability. The tool is an electronic spreadsheet which explores each of the 12 Commitments of the Global Standard and their sub-points, allowing organisations to provide evidence for their progress in respect to the commitment, score their capacity, and identify areas of improvement. The tool then allows organisations to summarise their progress in relation to all 12 Commitments and assess the way forward.

The self-assessment tool was developed in March of 2018 by the Instituto de Comunicación y Desarrollo (ICD) of Uruguay. The recent version was published in November of 2018, and was improved with the contributions made by Federation RACI (Argentina), ONG por la Transparencia (Colombia) and the Asociación Nacional de Centros and Grupo Propuesta Ciudadana (Peru).
