The Internationaler Bund (IB) Announces Membership of the VENRO Network

Since June 2014 the IB is member of the German development association VENRO.


VENRO is the umbrella organisation of development non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in Germany. The organisation was founded in 1995 and consists of around 120 organisations. Their backgrounds lie in independent and church-related development co-operation, humanitarian aid as well as development education, public relations and advocacy. VENRO is a member of the European umbrella organisation CONCORD.

VENRO's central goal is to construct a just globalisation, with a special emphasis on eradicating global poverty. The organisation is committed to implementing human rights and conserving natural resources.  

VENRO represents the interests of NGOs vis-à -vis the federal government. The organisation represents the variety of development organisations and acts as a forum where positions and opinions can be developed. It engages in lobbying and watches and comments on state policies concerning developing countries. It is a sought-after dialogue partner for decision makers in politics and society.
