This issue’s viewpoint by INTRAC Central Asia Programme Manager, Charles Buxton, highlights the need to stay committed to organisation’s values, themes and approaches even (especially!) in the absence of regular funding, and contributes some thoughts and examples on how to do so.

Keeping the focus on Central Asia, our guest contributor, Svetlana Dzardanova from the OSCE Academy in Kyrgyzstan, shares some of the key findings of her recent research on civil society, activism and the state in Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. She also addresses the key role young activists play in the region to contribute to sustainable development.

Also in this issue, Nicole Titera, Consultants for Change Programme Coordinator, takes stock and reflects on some of the challenges faced and opportunities moving forward after 18 months of intensive work managing 38 participants from six countries and an array of trainers and facilitators from the INTRAC network.

Plus details about our work with the Foundation for Civil Society in Tanzania and the Civil Society Support Programme in Ethiopia, our training calendar including our brand new online training ‘Fundraising for sustainability’, Development in Practice’s Special Issue on faith and development, and a guest blog by Wine Tesseur from University of Reading on languages and the SDGs!
