Olympic Solidarity Commission

   

Mission

   

Composition

 

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.

Role and responsibilities

The Olympic Solidarity Commission is responsible for defining the main courses of action and managing the activities of Olympic Solidarity, for example by approving programmes and the related budgets, and monitoring their implementation. It enjoys financial, technical and administrative independence, and reports to the IOC Executive Board and President, keeping them regularly informed about the main decisions taken, e.g. approval of programmes and budgets for the Olympic Solidarity quadrennial plans.

The Olympic Solidarity Commission relies on the Olympic Solidarity international office in Lausanne to implement, execute, monitor and coordinate all its decisions.
