The organizational structure of ICDP is “lean and mean”. It is simple and transparent, and is flexible in dealing with the logistical needs of individual projects yet uncompromising as regards scientific excellence; and it is inexpensive to administer.
The Assembly of Governors (AOG) provides governance, financial and scientific overview, makes major policy decisions and reviews the acceptance of new members for the whole ICDP program.
Current Panel Members (by Country)
The AOG is composed of one representative from each member country. Decisions of the AOG are made through consensus guided by the Chair. The AOG selects its own Chair for a three year term and holds annual meetings convened by the Chair who has the authority to call special meetings should the need arise. The Chair is rotated amongst member countries contributing above a certain theshold of annual membership fees.
