Helvetas Swiss Intercooperation (HIS) and Consortium of Christian Relief and Development Association (CCRDA) signed a three years partnership project agreement on September 29th, 2015 at the CCRDA Headquarter.

CCRDA and HSI have been working in partnership to promote an enabling environment for CSO/NGO for the last six years in Ethiopia. The cooperation between the two partners was initiated upon signing a project agreement in 2009. The major areas of the joint interventions include enhancing CSO’s capacity, creating enabling environment through evidence-based dialogue and establishment of strong partnerships between CSO and the Government, facilitation of policy dialogue on topical issues and promotion of ethical standards in the humanitarian sector.


After signing of the agreement

The joint engagement of HELVETAS and CCRDA over the past six years has been fruitful in addressing the demand of CSOs and in ensuring collective engagements on issues of common concern. As a continuation and consolidation of the past six years project a three years project proposal which will be implemented from 2015 to 2018 was jointly prepared. The project commenced from the beginning of October 2015.

This project took into consideration the programmatic merits of the previous phases, with special geographic focus on the Amhara Regional State and with complimentary interventions that help CCRDA to contribute towards strengthening and creating an enabling environment to its members in particular and the CSOs in general.

The three years project is entitled, “Strengthening and enhancing CSO’s institutional development and partnership capacity building with focus on Amhara Region” has three program outcomes. The first is technically strengthening CSOs/NGOs, partners and networks including the youth and women groups to plan, implement and manage client responsive projects. The second expected outcome Government-CSO partnership forums are established and strengthened in order to create an enabling working environment in the project area, and the third is CSO/NGO, forums/networks and partners access and apply latest policy and operational information and knowledge for harmonized and evidence based project approaches and interventions.

The total budget earmarked to implement this project is 2,860,668 birr.
