Organisation and logistics


Logistics work is very often a core function of a coalition’s staff or secretariat (if it has one). This work is sometimes a key reason a coalition staff or coordinator are appointed – to facilitate NGO organisation at meetings. It comes into focus most prominently during international meetings, but it is an important function for a coalition on a day-to-day basis as it manages finances and liaises with members in different countries with different needs and expectations.

Key logistics tasks include:

  • Organising flights, transport and accommodation
  • Ensuring accessibility of transport, accommodation and venues
  • Printing and managing documents
  • Organising side-events
  • Administration of sponsorship to participants
  • Managing finances
