Olympic Solidarity Commission





The missions of the IOC commissions are currently being revised and will be published shortly. 

Find out more about the IOC Commissions here.


The aim of Olympic Solidarity is to organise assistance for all the National Olympic Committees (NOCs), particularly those with the greatest needs, through multi-faceted programmes prioritising athlete development, training of coaches and sports administrators, and promoting the Olympic ideals (Olympic Charter, rule 5).

Four ways to support the NOCs

The four sections – World Programmes, Continental Programmes, Olympic Games Subsidies and Complementary Programmes - available through Olympic Solidarity function autonomously and complement one another. They cover the objectives of the NOCs, which are mainly to improve their functioning and organisational ability; to create or develop efficient structures; to organise training courses at various levels; and to profit from the technical and financial resources available, which in turn will benefit their athletes.
