In January 2012 the Center for Policy Studies (CPS) together with eight other partners started a project supported by the European Commission entitled “Update of the current status of implementation of international/bilateral trade regimes with ODA recipients and the current role of civil society and private sectors as development actors in the new EU Member states.”
The project takes place simultaneously in nine countries, namely, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia. The purpose of the project is to map out the existing development co-operation policies and strategies, examine the multilateral/bilateral agreements with the ODA recipient countries, and examine the role of the private sector and the civil society sector as development actors in each of these countries.
The map was created using Geocommons, a free and public community platform to access, visualize and analyze data. The data belongs to CPS and it was collected during a research project examining Hungary as an International Development Actor. Data was georeferenced by merging the initial CPS database with a common boundary dataset "World Country Boundary File with Fips" uploaded on geocommons.com and available under Creative Commons Attribution.
