The Practitioners’ Network consists of 17 Members, two Associates and one Observer.

The Practitioners’ Network is open to all European non-profit national bodies with a public service mission which directly implement European or bilateral development assistance. The status of observer is for inter-governmental bodies. The status of associate can be granted to a European agency that does not opt for membership or an EU member state that does not have a development agency.

All Members agree to the objectives, values and commitments of the Practitioners’ Network as recalled in the Charter of the Practitioners’ Network.

Members and Associates are pillar-assessed - or in the process of being pillar-assessed – by the European Commission.
