|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
- 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.
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
- 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
