A strong and vibrant civil society is important for a sustainable and just development and a pre-condition to achieve the SDGs. During the session we want to create a multi-stakeholder space to understand the trends in terms of role and space for civil society in different countries. From there on it will explore new ways of supporting civic space and the enabling environment for civil society as a critical precondition for a functioning OGP and achievement of SDGs. This should lead than to a number of on action points that can be taken up in the OGP National Action plans.
