The evaluation of CIVICUS was commissioned by the Civil Society Unit at Sida through the framework agreement on evaluation services. The concluding assessment is that CIVICUS is relevant to Sida’s civil society strategy and the organisation is fit-for-purpose to achieve its mission and contribute substantially to fulfilment of its strategic goals. Sida is seen as a flexible, cooperative and risk-taking donor, valued for its engagement in critical dialogue. Recommendations are mainly addressed to CIVICUS, acknowledging that they are refinements to processes and initiatives already set in motion. Sida has embarked on a sound collaboration based on core funding and the recommendation is therefore to continue the partnership based on these principles.
