The Steering Board is responsible for the governance of the international platform on sport and development (sportanddev). The Steering Board is composed of leading global actors in sport and sustainable development who are committed to the vision of sportanddev. The board approves sportanddev's strategy and budget and oversees implementation by the Operating Team.

The Steering Board of sportanddev was constituted in Namibia in 2007. It is comprised of one representative from each organisation that makes a financial and/or in-kind contribution to sportanddev and provides strategic advice.


The Current Members


The members of the Steering Board meet physically at least once per financial year to review and discuss sportanddev’s strategic framework and oversee its implementation. The head of the Operating Team is the executive secretary of the Steering Board and participates in Steering Board meetings. The Operating Team is not part of the Steering Board and does not have the right to vote.

sportanddev’s open structure allows for Steering Board members to be included throughout the financial year. Potential members are encouraged to contact the Operating Team to submit offers for contributing to sportanddev. The Operating Team will evaluate the offer, which will then be submitted to the Steering Board for approval.
