About Us

Scotland's International Development Alliance is the membership body for everyone committed to creating a fairer world, free from poverty, injustice and environmental threats.

Vision

  • Our vision is of a Scotland increasingly committed to creating a fairer world, free from poverty, injustice and environmental threats.

Mission

Our mission is:

  • To engage people and organisations in Scotland about international development and to facilitate their informed support.
  • To support people and organisations in Scotland contributing to effective international development to strengthen their support base and improve their impact.
  • To represent our members and the people and communities they serve, to local, national and international decision-makers.

History

We were formed in 2000 as the Network of International Development Organisations in Scotland (NIDOS). 

Between 2000 and 2016 our membership numbers grew from a standing start to over a hundred.  We had two categories of membership: full members being international development organisations based or represented in Scotland and associate members being other types of organisations, specifically universities or voluntary organisations which were primarily national in focus but also had international activities.
