The first theme that shall be intensively dealt with is the “Development Effectiveness of the Civil Society Organizations”. The emphasis will be primarily on the continuation of the activities started in June 2008 by setting up the Open Forum for CSO Development Effectiveness, gathering CSOs active in the area of provision of developmental aid with the aim of designing a global framework for developmental effectiveness of CSOs.

The second priority theme is “Good Governance”, within which one will seek to join the two dimensions of the concept, namely good governance in the light of provision of developmental aid and the process of democratization.
During the Czech Presidency, FoRS will also promote some other themes, such as education for development, sustainable technologies and sustainable development, migration and development as well as agriculture and food security.
