CRDA Five Year Strategic Plan (2009 - 2014)


CRDA is currently designing its five year /2009-2014/ strategic plan. Based on the consultation of members on the General Assembly, documentary review of the CRDA and civil society major documents and assessment of the operational environment, CRDA has come up with the following major issues that need to be addressed in its strategic Planning. Have a look at them and we would greatly appreciate if you could forward any more, comment on the existing ones or suggest any alternative options.

Please forward all your comments to spm@crdaethiopia.org.
We would like to thank you in advance for your invaluable feedback.

Ethiopian NGO/CSO Legislation


Alternative Draft CSO/NGO Legislation
As our partners recall, an NGO Legal Framework Consultative Taskforce formed in 2003 consisting of Action Aid Ethiopia (AAE), Action Professionals' Association for the People (APAP), AIDOW, Catholic Relief Service (CRS), Cher Ethiopia, Christian Relief and Development Association (CRDA), Christian Children's Fund of Canada (CCFC), Consortium of Reproductive Health Association (CORHA), Ethiopian Women's Lawyer Association (EWLA), Forum for Social Studies (FSS), Hope Enterprise, HUNDEE, Inter Africa Group (IAG) and PACT Ethiopia reviewed a draft NGO Legislation prepared by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ). The Taskforce in consultation with the MoJ repeatedly revised the document but unfortunately, the Ministry time and again failed to include NGO suggestions. Thus, the Taskforce during its meeting in July 2004 agreed to draft an alternative legislation. Doing so, it tabled the document for discussion by holding a press conference on October 29, 2004.

Commentary and Observations on the latest NGO/CSO Draft Legislation

It is to be recalled that in May 2004, an Activity Report on NGO/CSO Draft Legislation outlining the deliberations of the Task-Group and the progress made in developing the draft proclamation by giving an article-by-article account that attempted to graphically and comprehensively describe and record what transpired during the successive meetings held by the TG was submitted. This report is a follow up of the aforementioned report offering a commentary and/or observation on the draft prepared by the Ministry of Justice and submitted for our consideration and observation in June 2004. Like the previous report, this report also will indicate article-by-article, which agreements and/or understandings have been brought on board and which have been left unattended to without any change. In this report cross-reference will be made to the detailed May report for further clarification on detailed and pertinent issues. Therefore this report should be read in tandem with the May report. What this report sets out to do is simply indicate areas of convergence and divergence so as to easily and readily identify issues that need to be further taken up and addressed. And by way of conclusion will indicate the major areas of difference and the critical issues that need to be taken up and addressed further.
