Introduction Directory of development organisations - 2006 Edition

Welcome to the directory of development organizations 2006, Volume I: Africa

The directory of development organizations, listing 47.500 development organizations, has been prepared to facilitate international cooperation and knowledge sharing in development work, both among civil society organizations, research institutions, governments and the private sector.

The directory aims to promote interaction and active partnerships among key development organisations in civil society, including NGOs trade unions, faith based organizations, indigenous peoples movements, foundations and research centres. In creating opportunities for dialogue with governments and private sector, civil society organizations are helping to amplify the voices of the poorest people in the decisions that affect their lives, improve development effectiveness and sustainability and hold governments and policymakers publicly accountable.

In particular, the directory is intended to provide a comprehensive source of reference for development practitioners, researchers, donor employees, and policymakers who are committed to good governance, sustainable development and poverty reduction, through: the financial sector and microfinance, trade and business development services, rural development and appropriate technology, private sector development and policy reforms, legislation & rule of law and good governance, community development and social protection, gender equality and participation, environment and health, research, training and education.

As part of the collective effort to meet the Millennium Development Goals by 2015, the Year of Microcredit provided an opportunity for the international community to raise awareness about the importance of microfinance in eradicating poverty, and to enhance existing programmes that support sustainable, inclusive financial sectors worldwide. In essence, microfinance offers each day the possibility and hope to many poor people of improving through their own efforts their household economic welfare and well being and enterprise stability and growth. Therefore, In this 2006 edition, microfinance actors and practitioner organizations have been marked by [M], integrating microfinance support institutions and enabling environment into one directory.
