ABSTRACT

Since the era of goal-oriented development cooperation was initiated in 2000s, the extensity and intensity of cooperation between OECD/DAC donors and CSOs have been expanding. Accordingly, The paper aims to analyze three donors and CSO partnership - the UK, Sweden and Japan, represented in a group of Anglo, the Europe and the Asia respectively in the perspective of relevant policy or strategy, target and scale, type of implementation and monitoring and evaluation. As a result, Sweden has established an independent policy, whereas the UK and Japan have had strategies and reports at the operational level respectively. The UK and Sweden work with its domestic and international CSOs including civil society in developing countries. Three donors adapt combination of to CSOs and through CSOs, but the latter is much higher. More specifically, the UK has recently pursued an innovative approach through partnership restructuring. Result based monitoring and evaluation method is applied to both a project and a overall program level, commissioned by external evaluators, aiming to ensure accountability and transparency. Taken on these results into account, it suggests that KOICA should establish independent policies for partnership with CSOs including civil society in developing countries, increase the budget size to the average level of OECD / DAC in a long-term, diversify implementation types and finally foster flexibility of M&E, tailored to partnership context.
