The 21st edition of the publication “Sustainability Index of Civil Society Organizations of Central and Eastern Europe and Eurasia” was published, which contains the Report for Croatia.
The Civil Society Organization Sustainability Index (CSOSI) is a key analytical tool for measuring the progress of the civil sector in the Central and Eastern Europe and Eurasia region.
The index takes into account the overall enabling environment for civil society development, with an emphasis on the legal environment for CSOs, organizational capacity, financial sustainability, advocacy, service delivery, infrastructure and public image. Each dimension is evaluated according to a seven-point scale where the number 1 indicates a very advanced level and the number 7 a very low level of development. The Index was developed by the US Agency for International Development in cooperation with local organizations from the countries where the Index is applied.
