CID Strategic Plan 2023-2026

New Zealand’s international development NGO sector plays a vital role in partnering with people in the Pacific and beyond to eradicate poverty and injustice. CID provides cohesion for the sector, keeps it well informed on the latest thinking in international development, and unites it to achieve more accountable and effective development. CID provides a critical platform for members to work and learn together to strengthen New Zealand’s development effectiveness.

The 2023-2026 Strategic Plan sets out our vision for CID members to be connected, strong and able to deliver positive development outcomes.
