The main objective of the meeting was to continue overall coordination, inform and exchange on specific aspects of EU TACSO 3 mandate and build on the national level coordination on capacity development and P2P activities, including the P2P On-demand Programme, the proposal for development of the database of all Civil Society Facility (CSF) projects and sub-grants and role NRCs can play in development and consultation process on the review of the EU Civil Society Guidelines for the period 2021-2027.

The NRCs representatives presented their activities with specific focus on supporting CSOs’ needs in times of COVID-19 pandemics and needs for peer-to-peer exchange that can be addressed together.
