For the needs of the Delegation of the European Union to Montenegro, EU TACSO 3 project is organising an online consultation regarding the Civil Society Facility (CSF) and Media Programme 2024-2025.

The aim of this online consultation is to get your views on priorities for the programming of CSF 2024 – 2025 with civil society as well as other stakeholders interested in the development of the Programme.

Please send us your written contribution by Tuesday, 28 February 2023, at 16h.

Main questions that we would like to consult with you (you can answer all of them or just those of your interest):

  1. Which are the priority sectors that should be included in the programming of CSF 2024 – 2025 than are not funded or are under-funded by other donors?
  2. What are the overlooked sectors in which civil society needs to be reinforced in support of the accession process, and why? Please provide justification for the added value/ role of civil society in addressing some of the topics.
  3. In your view, what should be the minimum and maximum budget for a project to achieve results and have an impact?
  4. What should be the minimum duration for a project to achieve results and have an impact?
  5. What is the best way to support smaller-sized CSOs?
  6. In your view, should financial support to third parties (re-granting) be included in the programming? If no: please elaborate on why not. If yes: What are the sizes of grants or financial support to third parties you would like to see included in the Programme?
  7. If you already participated in a Call and got a sub-grant launched by other beneficiaries, what was your experience? What should be improved?
  8. According to you, is civil society well targeted under the Civil society Facility? Any thoughts or recommendations for improvement?
