Summary: NGO Bill: NGOs welcome a strong regulatory framework; warn NGO Bill should not be used to restrict civil society activities; call for strong consultation on implementation of Bill.

It's also important to note that the new Bill includes substantive changes that will make it easier for NGOs to continue serving the people of South Sudan. The NGO Forum is encouraged by the willingness to consult with civil society groups, including NGOs, and to take their feedback into consideration.Date: Attachment: ngos.ngobillstatement.13may15.pdf122.75 KB
