A Free Handbook for Engagement: Strengthening Civil Society’s Role in Development

The Feed the Future civil society engagement handbook outlines engagement practices for promoting local ownership and engaging civil society in an effort to translate aid effectiveness principles into practical mechanisms to advance development that is more participatory, inclusive, transparent, accountable and sustainable.

These engagement practices, and the country examples provided, are intended to support Feed the Future in promoting locally owned and led development as envisioned in the U.S. Global Food Security Strategy.

This Feed the Future civil society engagement handbook provides suggestions on ways to put local partners in the lead and make sustained civil society engagement in food security development more accessible, constructive and productive. It describes four practices and highlights country examples for meaningful engagement. It also explains the rationale, capabilities and convening mechanisms that development actors are using to promote local ownership and sustainability. It is intended to complement the CSAP and draws on Feed the Future’s already robust experience working with civil society. As with the CSAP, Feed the Future developed this handbook through an extensive consultative process with U.S.-based nongovernmental organizations.

This handbook outlines four engagement practices for promoting local ownership and engaging civil society in an effort to translate aid effectiveness principles into practical mechanisms to advance development that is more participatory,inclusive, transparent, accountable and sustainable.
