Application Deadline: 20 March 2018
Starting Date: 1/4/2018
Reports to: Programme Manager
PNGO is a coordination body for the NGO sector in Palestine with the purpose of strengthening the Palestinian civil society and contributing to the establishment of the Palestinian state based on the principles of democracy, social justice, rule of law, tolerance, and respect of human rights through networking, building-up the capacity of NGOs, developing information management centre and mainstreaming of society concerns into public policies, plans and programs. At present, PNGO boasts of 142 national NGOs in Gaza, West Bank and Jerusalem that work across sectors in different development and humanitarian fields.
Palestinian civil society historically played a vital role in service delivery to the public. Despite its significance in a period of occupation rule, their level of coordination was constrained by a number of internal and external factors. With the establishment of the Palestinian Authority, service delivery has been increasingly shifting to governmental institutions while a new space emerged for Palestinian civil society in governance and public policy setting. However, civil society capacity in policy dialogue and policy monitoring remains weak, especially in light of deficient coordination between CSOs.
The Palestinian Non Governmental Organizations Network (PNGO) In partnership with , Palestinian National Institute for NGOs (PNIN), Union for Charitable Societies – Jerusalem (UCS) and the Palestinian General Union of Charitable Societies, Is Implementing its joint EU funded Programme: “Palestinian Civil Society Platforms: A Vehicle for Grassroots Civil Society Development and Policy Influence”.
The aim of the programmme to promote the role of Palestinian civil society organizations in national dialogue, public policies, and regional networking on civil society matters. Implemented by a strategic consortium of the existing Palestinian civil society umbrella networks, the programme builds on the achievements, lessons learned, and internal and external coordination structures established by the previous project funded by the EU to the same consortium in the years 2014-2016. The programme heavily draws on the Civil Society index, strategic plans of the CS networks, and the external evaluation conducted in the previous project. The specific objective of the proposed action is to enhance a more coordinated role of civil society platforms to better represent their members, build their capacity, and activate their role in policy influence over issues of civil society concern. The duration of the programme is 3 years from 1st January 2018 to 31st December 2020.
