Recent modifications within the EMDA Network Organisation.

In the recent period the organisation structure of the EMDA Network has been changed a view times in order to comply with the actual operational capacity. Special the decentralisation en strong reducing of support in Central- and Eastern Europe has resulted in the liquidation of the organisations in East-Germany and in Latvia. Also the administrative office in Losser, the Netherlands has been closed and the activities in the sector of Monitoring and Supervision are now concentrated in Luxembourg. This has also been the reason for a temporary non-availability of the website of the organisation during some period.

A small new and purely working with volunteers fundraising organisation is actual operational in the Netherlands.

To strengthening the organisation structure, the EMDA Network Organisation is looking for candidates to join the existing board and assist with the establishment of a team meeting the new targets within European development cooperation and jointly establish the strategy of the organisation in the future.

A cooperation of the EMDA Network together with a special selected group of small-scale NGOs will be a major topic.
