Dear Reader,                                                                                                              23 November 2016

Welcome to Issue 178 of the sportanddev newsletter!

One of the biggest events of the sport and development calendar, the Peace and Sport Forum, begins in Monaco today. The event will showcase some of the ways sport can be used to promote tolerance, build relationships and alleviate tension in regions affected by war and violence. has published some articles to whet your appetite and will provide first-hand coverage over the coming days.

Elsewhere in this newsletter, we highlight a call for transparency in sport and development NGOs, a community based organisation using sport to address social impact in Kenya and a commentary which considers how to decide which sport is most appropriate for a project. We also feature an article exploring recent developments in cerebral palsy while this week’s French article focuses on a campaign to fight discrimination.

Finally, in preparation for the International Volunteer Day for Economic and Social Development, we are asking for articles on the topic. Whether have been a volunteer, have worked with volunteers or have an opinion on the subject, we would love to hear from you.

Enjoy your reading,

Paul Hunt

Senior Project Officer
