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.
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.
