National Civil Society Sustainability Strategy for Civil Society in Ghana

Jan 1, 2019

This strategy paper has been developed as a one-stoptoolbox of ideas, initiatives and strategies for making Ghanaian civil society viable and sustainable. This strategy paper analyses the different approaches, models and resourcing strategies commonly used by CSOs around the world drawing inspiration from previous work by the West Africa Civil Society Institute (WACSI) on issues around sustainability and the characteristics of sustainable CSOs. From the national CSO convenings, it has become clear that there is growing interest in the development of alternative funding models that reduce a CSO's dependence on traditional gift-incomes and official aid.
