The Interchurch Organisation for Development Co-operation (ICCO) is a Dutch Co-Funding Development Organisation, founded in 1965, that works towards a world where poverty and injustice are no longer present. It advocates a human rights-based approach in its work.
ICCO carries out its mission primarily by facilitating, financially and otherwise, development programmes and projects initiated by civil society organisations. It offers local partners support and services in areas such as organisation development and advocacy efforts. The organisation is currently active in 60 countries and working with some 950 local organisations. Other activities include:
Together with six other Dutch organisations, ICCO has formed an alliance to ensure a more comprehensive and efficient support for southern partner-organisations. ICCO's current focus on three key themes:
At present, ICCO provides sole financial support for equalinrights. ICCO was also a major instigator behind the creation of equalinrights and has played a significant role in its conceptual development. ICCO continues to offer support for both strategy and operational issues with Mr Pim Verhallen, Policy Officer at ICCO, as a member of the equalinrights Steering Committee and as direct liaison.
We note though that equalinrights is an independent not-for-profit organisation and is not bound by ICCO policy, focus-countries, methodology or practice.
Equalinrights gratefully acknowledges the financial support extended to EiR programme and project activities by the following organisations:
