PIANGO Council

PIANGO is governed by the PIANGO Council which meets every three to four years and is responsible for establishing policy and programme directions. It is comprised of PIANGO's members, who are national bodies called National Liaison Units (NLUs). These are organisations or networks of NGOs which are broadly representative of NGOs in their country. With one NLU per country or territory, each NLU has one vote in the PIANGO Council. Where there is no NLU, interim membership may be issued to an NGO group working to establish an NLU.

Special Council Meeting, February 2010 (Nadi, Fiji)

In February 2010, 12 countries attended the PIANGO Special Council Meeting in Nadi, Fiji. The meeting was convened to decide on PIANGO's future following defunding by NZAID and the collapse of the Secretariat in May 2009.

At the meeting, PIANGO members were emphatic that the organization was not an office funded by donors but one made up of its membership of National Liaison Units (NLUs). The NLUs emphasized that they are PIANGO and wanted to see the PIANGO Secretariat continue and the organization retain its role as a regional platform - however, with a change in direction.
