Established in 2009, the multi-stakeholder Task Team aims to advance norms and implementation of international commitments in relation to civil society and development. In particular, the Task Team seeks to promote and facilitate implementation of development practice consistent with civil society-related commitments made at the 2008 Accra and 2011 Busan High Level Fora on aid and development effectiveness and more recently at the 2014 Mexico High Level Meeting.

Uganda National NGO Forum was selected to co-chair on this Task Team on behalf of CPDE. The Task Team maintains a particular interest in the commitments to strengthen democratic ownership, to implement an enabling environment for civil society (including donor support and engagement with civil society), and to further the development effectiveness of civil society organizations (CSOs).

The Task Team is a voluntary body composed of official development cooperation providers, partner countries and CSOs. It is currently co-chaired by representatives from the President’s Office of the Government of Mali, the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the CSO Partnership for Development Effectiveness (CPDE).
