North Macedonia: Civil Society & Inclusive Governance
© Maria Dimkovska
PIN focuses on engaging citizens in local decision-making and encourages effective cooperation among civil society, governments, and communities to support a more open democratic process. PIN builds the capacity of both civil society organizations and local authorities while empowering citizens to voice their needs, advocate for local issues, and influence policymaking processes.
PIN builds the capacity of both governments and civil society to help them develop sustainable and inclusive social protection systems and services, and empowers marginalised people so that they may have equal say and opportunities.
During times of crisis, PIN strives to protect vulnerable groups who may be placed at greater risk.
