Civil Society Fund


The Civil Society Fund (CSF) programme is a joint initiative of the European Union (EU) and the Ethiopian Government with the overall aim of increasing the role of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in the development and democratization process in the country. The EU support has been made available through three phases, starting with CSF I, which was implemented between 2006 to 2012, followed by CSF II from 2012 to 2019, and currently CSF III, a 4-year programme, which began operations in November 2018. All three interventions have been managed by the European Union’s Delegation to Ethiopia, with the support of a Technical Assistance Unit (TAU).
