KP Webinar

CSO Accountability: why and how should CSOs effectively engage stakeholders to increase their impact?

January 30th, 2019, 09:00 am EST



About the Webinar

Following on from the webinar CSO Accountability: A people-driven approach to increase trust and impact hosted by the GPSA Knowledge Platform, in this webinar we will dive deeper into a key aspect of CSO accountability – stakeholder engagement. By involving stakeholders in various aspects of programmes, strategy, and advocacy, from planning and decision making to implementation and monitoring, CSOs are able to increase buy-in and achieve better, more sustainable impact. Accountable Now and CBM International will talk about why stakeholder engagement is important, how to go about it and some common challenges, and share best practices.
