Commonwealth Foundation Endorses New Guidelines for Good Policy and Practice for NGOs

September 1, 1995
Humanitarian Practice Network

The Second Commonwealth NGO Forum met between June 18-23 in Wellington, New Zealand. This gathering of more than 150 NGO representatives, endorsed the document Non-Governmental Organisations: Guidelines for Good Policy and Practice. The document sets out guidelines on good policy and practice for NGOs themselves and for NGOs in their relationships with others. During the past three years, the document has passed through an extensive consultation process before being presented to the Forum in New Zealand. Now that the document has been endorsed by NGO delegates, it will be presented to the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Auckland, New Zealand in November.
