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 final draft of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) framework has been published this weekend after the last round of Open Working Group meetings (OWG13) came to a close. The framework will now be discussed at the UN General Assembly in September, along with a report by the Intergovernmental Committee of Experts on Sustainable Development Financing.
In today's Third Force News our Chief Executive, Gillian Wilson, explains why government will have to rethink its approach to international development regardless of the outcome of the referendum. Whatever the outcome of the referendum in September, the NIDOS is calling for human rights and global responsibilities to be central to government policy in Scotland.
The Electoral Commission has published guidance for charities on the Lobbying Act. The Act will come into effect across the UK on 19th September and may affect how your organisation undertakes campaigning in the run up to certain elections.
Join us for this two-part members’ event – share your views and have your input to help us prepare for the aftermath of the referendum.
