Organised by INTRAC in partnership with ICD Uruguay, Peace Direct and Y Care International 

If the international community is to deliver on its promises to the most vulnerable people, then civil society actors need to be independent, effective, credible and sustainable. This virtual Event will contribute to bringing about a fundamental change in how funders and intermediary organisations support the sustainability of grantees and partners.

Join us to share experiences and build momentum to rethink partnership, strengthen capacity for sustainability, and ensure a responsible approach to planning for aid exit.
