Code Of Ethics

All members of CID must agree to abide by a Code of Ethics which promotes accountability and includes a set of principles about development. These principle are:

  • Development should be sustainable and encompass the social, spiritual, cultural and economic well-being of people.
  • The poor should make decisions about their own development.
  • The ultimate test of policies is their long terms effect on the lives of the poorest sectors of society, especially women and children.
  • Sustainable development involves the use of all resources for the benefit of future generations.
  • Issues of justice, peace, human rights and the protection of the environment cannot be separated from development issues internationally.
  • Development education in Aotearoa/New Zealand is an integral part of all development programs.
  • In all promotional activity, Council members should ensure that the dignity of aid recipients is recognised and advanced.
