Posted on 30 December 2018

CID Briefing Paper

Author: Chris Clarke


Synopsis: This research paper examines the issues and opportunities impacting on corporate governance in the International Non-Governmental Organisation (International NGO)sector. The paper recommends a four-pronged strategy to strengthen corporate governance. The main recommendation is that the Council for International Development (CID) include in its 2019 review of its Code of Conduct, a scoping study of a sector-wide governance training and Qualmark accreditation programme that could be embedded into the existing CID Code. Other recommendations include strengthening governance partnerships with ‘CID like’ Australian organisations and helping identify and develop potential International NGO governors.
