International Development

Purpose of the group

The purpose of the group is to ensure liaison between MSPs and organisations working in Scotland on international aid and development issues. To further raise awareness in Scotland of these issues and to provide a Scottish forum for discussion, while also promoting stronger links between Scotland and international aid and development agencies. The group will also seek to promote development education in Scotland, to support Scottish organisations working in international aid and development programmes and where appropriate facilitate regular visits to Scotland by representatives of the international humanitarian agencies while engaging with minority residents in Scotland to encourage their involvement in the work of the group.
