Continental programmes

The Continental Programmes offer the NOCs assistance that meets their specific needs and priorities on each continent and complements those offered at world level.

Adapted to real-life situations

The programmes’ funds must be allocated primarily to NOCs for the development of their own national activity programme. The NOCs can thus improve their operational efficiency by selecting activities that take into account the current local context and the reality on the ground. The standard programmes for each continental association must also cover, in principle, the following basic elements: administration, running costs and organisation of statutory meetings. In parallel, the continental associations can set aside some of the funds to develop specific programmes in accordance with the particular needs and situation of their continent.
