Accountability Reports

All Members of the INGO Accountability Charter are required to submit an annual accountability report that is reviewed by the Independent Review Panel.


Global Standard

The Global Standard for CSO Accountability is an initiative of nine well-established civil society accountability networks from around the world. The overarching aim is to strengthen the effectiveness of CSOs worldwide by devising a collective accountability standard.
