Summary of project results


The project “Strengthening the Capacity of FOND and its Member NGOs in the Field of Development Cooperation In Romania” was necessary in order to support the process of organisational development of the federation concerning two dimensions: membership engagement and consolidation of the federation’s structure. More sustainability was envisaged, both as a network at national level and also at the international level. The internal strengthening of the federation was needed as a step towards consolidating FOND’s position as a relevant actor in the elaboration and implementation of the national development cooperation policy, in relation to the institutional actors engaged in this field. This project managed to reach its objectives by using a coherent approach concerning members’ needs, developing internal instruments to ensure the sustainability of the federation and supporting the policy and advocacy strategic directions within the framework of FOND’s mission to have an effective national development cooperation policy. Among the main results achieved by the project are: a new FOND strategy which reflects the needs of the members and the opportunities arising from the national and international trends in the field of development cooperation; the facilitation of expertise and lessons learned sharing among members of the federation and also constant knowledge sharing on the relevant opportunities for members; upgrading the services provided to members according to their needs; raising awareness on the federation among national actors and maintaining a constant communication on supporting the recommendations made by members on improving the current strategic and legal framework of the national policy on development cooperation.
