NGO SUPPORTERS FOR PROJECT REVIEWS
For those organisations that need to contact our NGO Supporters as part of their project review process, follow the procedure below to identifying the right NGOs to contact:
- Click on the NGO Project Review link>>
- Go to the project type and the region related to your project. This will provide you with the list of NGO Supporters interested in that project type and region.
- Email those NGOs listed as part of your project review process.
This is intended to better focus reviews on only those NGOs who have indicated interest and relevant expertise for given project types and geographies. Please note that in the future, we hope to integrate the NGO Supporter review process into a certification workflow tool currently in development.
