Civil Society Europe has launched a survey on the participation of civil society in the drafting of the National Recovery and Resilience Plans. EU Member States have to present a plan by April 2021 in order to benefit from the funding of the European Recovery Plan agreed at EU level. This package of measures aims to support Member States in the way out of the crisis caused by the Coronavirus pandemic and lay the foundations for a modern and more sustainable Europe.
According to the guidelines of the European Commission to Member States, Civil society organisations and social Partners have to be consulted on the preparation of the National Plans.
We would like to assess the level and quality of consultations and dialogues happening in the different countries. We are preparing a report that and will present it to the European Institutions in order to improve the transparency of the process and ensure that civil society organisations are actively involved.
We invite all civil society organisations that are engaged or wish to be engaged with this process to respond to a short survey.
Please take a few minutes of your time to respond to a few questions by clicking on this link.
Should you wish further information on how to engage on the National Recovery & Resilience Plans, we invite you to read our Guidance Note for civil society.
