Presentation of the Report “Mapping of Local and Community-Based Organizations”

Yesterday, within the framework of the European Commission-funded GrassRoots Action Support-GRAS project which is implemented by IKS, LENS and FES, was held a roundtable where the research report “Mapping of Local and Community-Based Organizations” was presented and its findings were discussed among relevant stakeholders.

The report provides a general overview of the functioning of community-based organizations in Kosovo, their needs in terms of organizational capacity development, providing financial support and establishing links with the community, and an analysis of the efforts of these organizations in advocacy and lobbying. The findings of this report will be used to design and further adapt the financial support and technical assistance that will be provided by GRAS project.

At this roundtable were present a number of representatives of civil society organizations, international organizations, public institutions and media.
