Accountable Now is a global platform that supports civil society organisations (CSOs) to be transparent, responsive to stakeholders and focused on delivering impact.
Accountable Now initially had ten commitments as a voluntary code of conduct. These were initiated in 2005 by 11 international CSOs. In 2008, Accountable Now (previously INGO Accountability Charter) was founded as an organisation to assure compliance and to further improve international civil society standards. In 2014, the Commitments were fully revised by a working group of Accountable Now Member Organisations. In June 2017, Accountable Now’s Members unanimously agreed to adopt the 12 Accountability Commitments of the Global Standard for CSO Accountability to replace the Charter commitments, thus aligning with eight other CSO accountability networks around the world.
