Mid-term review of the Civil Society Support Programme (CSSP) in Ethiopia

Itad is carrying out the mid-term review of the Civil Society Support Programme (CSSP) in Ethiopia. The programme is national in coverage, implemented by the British Council in partnership with Intrac and the IDL Group.


The CSSP programme is funded by a set of development partners led by Irish Aid, and including DFID, DANIDA, Canada, NORAD, SIDA and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. CSSP is a capacity development programme designed to support Ethiopia’s civil society and its contribution to the country’s national development, poverty reduction and advancement of good governance in line with the government’s policies and strategies. The programme has a strong emphasis on “hard to reach” civil society and citizens and uses a regionally led programming approach.

The three-person review team has carried out field visits and data gathering and is in the process of producing a review report. The review will be complete in late July 2014.
