On May 1, 2014, stakeholders gathered for the “Development of Entrepreneurship in Azerbaijan” conference at the Baku Hilton.
On February 28, 2014, eleven Azerbaijani civil society organizations (CSO) completed the Increasing Civil Society Organizations Effectiveness Training Program. The training was delivered by USAID’s Building Local Capacity for Development (BLCD) project from September 2013 through February 2014. The training focused on helping CSOs build practical skills and develop the tools and resources to enable them to implement development initiatives.
Today, the USAID-funded Women’s Participation Program in partnership with the “Clean World” Public Union and the Citizens’ Labor rights Protection League organized a public discussion on “Mechanisms of state intervention into intra-family conflicts to prevent domestic violence” as part of the world-wide initiative “16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence”.
Today, a conference entitled "The Development of Small Businesses in Azerbaijan" was held as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week in the Baku Business Center.
Many civil society organizations (CSO) in Azerbaijan have significant gaps in their ability to develop strategic plans, create effective governance structures, and manage financial control systems and funds. Without these capabilities, CSOs will have greatly diminished ability to use resources effectively to improve the lives of Azerbaijanis.
