Civil society is a strategic partner in state building and development. Civil society organisations (CSOs) in many parts of Africa and the world at large are at the forefront of calls for effective policies, good governance, sustainable development, peace and transparency in state affairs.The role of civil society is to make democracy work by bringing people’s issues and the voices of the marginalised to the social and political arenas. Civil society actors contribute towards delivering public services and facilitating democracy and development at the grassroots.Civil society shapes public agenda and influences public policies. They promote the values of human rights, social justice, participation, accountability and pluralism that make democracy and development meaningful. In addition, they hold governments and multi-lateral organisations to account for their policies, programmes and actions.
