About: We are an international alliance of Catholic development agencies working together for global justice.
16 catholic development organisations from Europe & North America, inspired by shared Christian values, come together under the CIDSE umbrella to promote global justice and solidarity. Central to CIDSE’s policy formulation and advocacy is its member organisations’ work on a wide range of priorities, with local partner organisations in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
Contributing to the fight against poverty and inequality, as well as bringing about sustainable development and well-being by challenging global structural injustices are key elements of CIDSE’s mission, which we attempt to achieve through joint advocacy, campaigning and development cooperation work.
Our priority issues are global governance; resources for development; food, agriculture & sustainable trade; climate justice; and business & human rights.
As a lay-led Catholic network, we believe in a world with peaceful and fair foundations where the lives and choices of rich and poor alike are transformed through solidarity.
