Consultation is the key to making standards relevant

Donor Reference Group

The first meeting for the Donor Reference Group was held on 23 June, chaired by Humentum’s Director of Governance Affairs and Advocacy.

“The inaugural meeting of IFR4NPO’s DRG, included representatives of key public and private donor agencies. the DRG affirmed the need for international standards committed to provide input, guidance and support as the initiative moves beyond the initial consultative phase”

Cynthia Smith, Humentum’s Director of Government Affairs and Advocacy, DRG Chair.

Humentum opinion

There are many valid reasons for prioritising alternatives proposed for the Guidance which many not always be compatible. In this blog, Humentum’s Finance Director, Jocelyn Boughton argues that equity, accountability and resilience will be the factors that drive her responses. Read the blog below.
