Enhanced partnerships between civil society, public and private sector have been recognized by the United Nations as a vital instrument in the attainment of growth and sustainable human development. The United Nations in its 1996 General Assembly Resolution 50/225 emphasized the value of strengthening the collaboration between the different actors in the civil society, private and public sectors to support all phases in the development process. The four essays published here as well as the two introductory chapters that provide guidance on the definition of civil society in general address the important issues of citizen government dialoguing in fiscal policies and its potential to influence budgeting to assist the poor. The essays also highlight several challenges associated with civil society participation. Most importantly, the book cautions that the direct citizen/government dialoguing should by no means be seen as an alternative to the established democratic processes, nor should such a process be seen to be by-passing the Parliament, rather it should look for options as to how best to complement the existing framework.
