In Mozambique, as in many other countries, civil society organisations could be more effective in standing up for citizens. The government tends to see the role of civil society as providing services, rather than holding government to account. Donors also hinder the effectiveness of civil society organisations by imposing a confusing range of requirements.
The AGIR programme involved donors working together to harmonise their support and build the capacity of civil society organisations to represent the interests of citizens and engage constructively with the authorities. This case study gives an overview of the AGIR programme including, aims, results, impact and lessons learned.
