Developing Innovation-driven and Sustainable Civil Society in Azerbaijan
Over the past years, CSOs in Azerbaijan have reportedly faced certain legal and political limitations that resulted in scarce opportunities for financial and technical support for the CSOs and reduced civic space. Recent developments point that there are visible improvements in the CSOs operating environment that open up a possibility to revive donors’ efforts in support of the CSO sector and expand avenues for CSOs cooperation with the Government around social issues. Against this background, the project is designed as a multi-dimensional response to accelerate the development and growth of the civil society sector in Azerbaijan through, inter alia, promoting social entrepreneurship culture and innovative solutions.
