  • national NGO coordinating associations in CARE Member countries, for example VOICE (Europe), Interaction (USA), DEC (UK), ACFID (Australia) and Coordination Sud (France)
  • quality and accountability networks (such as HAP, ALNAP, Sphere, People in Aid)
  • specific partnerships, initiatives or alliance-for example, the ECB project.
