Strengthening intergovernmental cooperation with nongovernmental organizations
Synonyms: Strengthening international cooperation with grass-roots organizations
Implementation: UNDP encourages such cooperation though its [Partners in Development Programme] as part of plans to strengthen cooperation to small-scale grass-roots development activities undertaken by indigenous organizations in recipient countries, and to strengthen the technical and managerial capabilities of these organizations. UNDP has also supported the creation of the Africa 2000 Network of African nongovernmental organizations (for which it has set up the Africa 2000 Network Trust Fund), working to support communities in natural resources management, community forestry, food production, and environmental protection. UNDP assists recipient governments to work with nongovernmental organizations by helping with data collection, facilitating dialogue, providing appropriate institutional support and involving nongovernmental organizations in programme and project design where appropriate.
