The updated version of the Roadmap intends to enhance the EU support to and engagement with Timorese CSO to optimise their role as development actors. Based on the research and analysis undertaken along with the consultation processes with CSO carried out in 2016 and 2017, this Roadmap validates, slightly updating the phrasing, the previous four priorities for action by the EUD and EU Member States for the period 2018-2020, the end of the EU programming cycle:
As a significant element of this RM, the EU have commissioned a CSO Mapping, which will identify and assess key Civil Society actors, their roles and interactions throughout the public policy cycle in the two focal sectors of cooperation of the 11th EDF National Indicative Programme (i.e. good governance and rural development, including nutrition), in gender (the EU Delegation Gender Action Plan was recently approved) and education. The CSO Mapping should be completed early 2019.
