Financial support of global development projects

The IOF Regional and Youth Development Commission (RYDC) will select a number of development projects to receive financial support. Selected projects by sub-regional groups must contribute to the achievement of the IOF Goals 2020:

Regional Development

✓ The number of IOF Member Federations has increased to 80.

✓ Regional and sub-regional structures are functioning on all continents.

✓ 55 countries participate at WOC.

✓ 80% of Member Federations experience growth in activity.

Youth Development

✓ 80% of Member Federations report growth in youth participation.

✓ At least one person under 30 years of age in each discipline commission.

✓ Have an IOF representative appointed to the International School Sports Federation (ISF) Technical Commission for Orienteering.

Recreational orienteering

✓ The number of recreational orienteers worldwide has risen to more than 2 000 000

(See Strategic directions 2018-2022)

Do you have a project that might be encompassed by one or more of these goals? You could receive financial backing!

Examples of such activities could be organising development clinics, youth leader academies, youth championships, etc., or cooperating and sharing successful concepts between countries.
