Who we are

The Association of International Development Agencies (AIDA) is a membership body and coordination forum of over 80 international non-governmental and non-profit organizations working in the occupied Palestinian territory. Active since 1967, AIDA is one of the longest-standing INGO coordination mechanisms in the world.  This coordination, important in any aid/development context, acquires additional significance in the complex political environment of the oPt.

What we do

The mission of AIDA is to strengthen the work of the international non-governmental organization community in the oPt in order to better address the rights of the Palestinian people. AIDA does this by being a collective voice of its members and representing their interests to key decision-makers, and by coordinating and facilitating exchange, learning and resource-sharing among its members.


AIDA provides a forum for organizations to share experiences, identify challenges, and find solutions to support the humanitarian and development work of its members and the people and communities they support.
