About this grant
In Croatia, community development and mobilization are critical to the country’s overall development. As Croatia seeks to conform to European Union standards and practices, development will focus on decentralizing government functions and services and increasing the capacity for local decisionmaking. Funding will enable MAP Consulting to pursue objectives that include conducting research and analyzing community-development and community-mobilization initiatives and their effectiveness in Croatia; generating recommendations about future programming and policy development that will impact local communities; and building the capacity of practitioners and other local stakeholders by encouraging the exchange of best practices and discussion among those engaged in community-development and community-mobilization initiatives.MAP Consulting, based in Croatia, provides consulting, assessment, research, analysis and training services related to development, gender, civil society and other social issues.
