Sport for Development and Peace

The Commonwealth Secretariat advocates for sport to be used as a vehicle for peace and development.

We assist member countries to develop policies and frameworks that link sport to outcomes in areas such as health, education, gender equality and social cohesion.

Commonwealth Advisory Body on Sport

The Commonwealth Advisory Body on Sport (CABOS) is an independent body providing advice on sport policy issues, particularly as it relates to Sport for Development and Peace (SDP), and protecting the integrity of sport. CABOS reports to the Commonwealth Secretary-General, Commonwealth Sports Ministers Meetings and, through the Commonwealth Secretariat, to member governments and key stakeholders.

A key component of CABOS’ role is to advise on sport integrity issues.
