The CODE-NGO Leaders will afterwards present the Code of Conduct of Development NGOs to President Aquino, signed by the 12 member networks.

Member Networks will affirm their commitment to the Code of Conduct for Development NGOs as a response to the greater demand for accountability by CSOs.  The National Confederation of Cooperatives is a member of CODE-NGO.
