Civil society organizations make a difference.
Fiji Council of Social Services President, Sitiveni Turaganibure says they are more than capable of ensuring developed funding assistance reaches those in need.
“Civil Society Organizations are very well structured especially on the ground and we think that we have the better machinery to carry out any development at the community level.”
The FCOSS President made the comments while attending the Asian Development Bank’s high-level meeting in Nadi last week.
CSO’s were represented in their numbers, not only from Fiji but from the Asia Pacific region.
Among the deliberations, was the ADB’s safeguard policy which aims to promote sustainability of project outcomes by protecting the environment and people from the project’s potential adverse impacts.
