Since mid-2018 FES is providing capacity strengthening and engagement of civil society organizations, policy makers, public servants, members of Parliament and other interested stakeholders for their contribution towards realization of social protection, good governance, decentralization and citizen participation programs in addition to discussing on issues critical to sustainable development workshops, conferences and seminars of relevant stakeholders.

FES is working closely with the Ministry of Local Government (MINALOC) to conduct evidence-based research after approval by the concerned institutions. FES is making its international network available for sharing expertise, knowledge, best practices, experiences and lessons learnt on the implementation of Sustainable Development Goals in areas within the mandate of the Ministry of Local Government.
