CSPPS supports coordinated local civil society engagement in the implementation of New Deal for engagement in fragile states; strategic support is provided through consultations with the civil society representative at country level. The Country Team is supported in processes related to New Deal implementation. The goal is to provide timely and consolidated civil society inputs on development of fragility assessments; country-specific and shared global indicators to measure progress toward peacebuilding and statebuilding goals.
Country level is where the essential work around the New Deal implementation process is performed by peacebuilding, statebuilding and development stakeholders.
Civil Society coalitions provide necessary voice and representation on behalf of the intended beneficiaries of the New Deal, the people of fragile and conflict-affected countries. Civil society is represented in the New Deal process by the Country Team coordinated by a Focal Point organization supported by CSPPS in the following countries:
