Survey of the sector shows increased local partnerships

Posted on 27 September 2022

Every year, the Council for International Development survey's its member organisations, to help understand their global presence and state of operations.

The survey results provide insights on the countries they focus on, the areas of greatest need, how much money is being spent on international development, and more.

This year (2021-22), 58 CID members responded to the survey, representing 67% of our members at June 30 2022.

A new report out provides analysis and comparison on areas of interest from the survey results.
