Welcome to NIDOS
NIDOS is the network in Scotland that unites the international development sector to promote effectiveness and collectively influence the policy agenda. Our aim is to strengthen the contribution of Scottish organisations to reducing inequality and poverty worldwide.
The consultation to agree on proposals for more devolved powers for Scotland has been launched. The Smith Commission is currently working with SCVO to determine what further powers Scotland’s voluntary sector would like to see devolved.
SCVO has been given just two weeks to consult with the sector.
This week saw world leaders gather at the UN’s Climate Summit 2014.
The Carbon Brief has a great round up of all the major announcements and a summary of each country’s speech. David Cameron reiterated the UK’s progress in addressing climate change to date and called for the world to reach a global deal at next year’s COP21 conference in Paris. A full copy of Cameron’s speech is available on the UK Government website.
Scotland has voted by majority in favour of remaining part of the UK. The Network of International Development Organisations in Scotland (NIDOS) and its member organisations look forward to helping build Scotland’s contribution to a more just world through its devolved powers. The pro-Union political parties have stated that extra powers will now be offered to Scotland. NIDOS and its members hope that civil society will be invited to help shape what those extra powers may be. Even without further devolution, there is recognition within the sector that we must seek to further enhance Scotland’s approach to international development. As part of civil society, NIDOS members believe these changes should focus on building equality and eradicating poverty both in Scotland and around the world. We hope the 17 recommendations in our report will inform institutional and policy development.
