2014 NNNGO Annual Conference
The 14th Annual NNNGO Conference titled, “CSO Legitimacy, Transparency and Accountability: The role of government and civil society”, served as a unique opportunity for civil society organizations and government to discuss and make remarkable contributions to issues around NGO accountability and to encourage compliance with existing regulations.
For over 8 hours, NGOs led by series of experts drawn from the government and civil society honed their understanding of the statutory accountability requirements for NGOs and raised their awareness of the importance of complying with such, while also identifying gaps. The wide-ranging discussions culminated in the creation and adoption of a 2-page communiqué, which will help the NNNGO and relevant government agencies work together in addressing the challenges of NGO regulations in Nigeria.
Held at the NEC Building, in Lagos, Nigeria, 3 December 2014, the Conference attracted over 200 participants from 183 NGOs and the six geopolitical zones of Nigeria, including representatives of the media, government and the private sector. It was organized by the Nigeria Network of NGOs in partnership with the International Center for Not-for-Profit Law and supported by Innercity Mission for Children and Guinness Nigeria.
The Conference featured high-level government and NGO experts on NGO regulations, who addressed participants. Making the 2014 edition a first time the NNNGO Annual Conference would witness the participation of high-level government representatives.
