    COMMONWEALTH  GAMES  FEDERATION ( the role of CGF )

At the heart of the CGF's work is the will to dynamically promote and celebratea unque, friendly, world class Games.

The Commonwealth    is an association of independent sovereign states spread over every continent and ocean. From Africa to Asia, the Pacific shores to the Caribbean, the Commonwealth’s 2 billion people make up 30% of the world’s population and are of many faiths, races, languages, cultures and traditions.

 

The Commonwealth Games is a unique, world class, multi-sports event which is held once every four years. It is often referred to as the ‘Friendly Games’.

 

The Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) is the organisation that is responsible for the direction and control of the Commonwealth Games.

 

As a means of improving society and the general well being of the people of the Commonwealth, the CGF also encourages and assists education via sport development and physical recreation.

 

Underlying every decision made by the CGF are three core values: - HUMANITY - EQUALITY - DESTINY. These values help to inspire and unite millions of people and symbolise the broad mandate of the CGF within the Commonwealth.

Commonwealth of Nations -

The Commonwealth of Nations is a voluntary association of 54 - independent sovereign states (one of
whose membership is currently suspended). Most are former British colonies, or dependencies of these
colonies. No one government in the Commonwealth exercises power over the others, as in a political
union. Rather, the relationship is one of an international organisation through which countries with
diverse social, political, and economic backgrounds are regarded as equal in status, and co-operate
within a framework of common values and goals, as outlined in the Singapore Declaration.
 
These include the promotion of democracy, human rights, good governance, the rule of law, individual
liberty,egalitarianism, free trade, multilateralism, and world peace, and are carried out through
multilateralprojects and meetings, as well as the quadrennial Commonwealth Games.
 
The symbol of this free association is Queen Elizabeth II, known for this purpose as Head of the
Commonwealth. This position, however, does not imbue her with any political or executive power over
any Commonwealth member states; the position is purely symbolic, and it is the Commonwealth
Secretary-General who is the chief executive of the organisation.
 
The members have a combined population of 2.2 billion people, almost a third of the world population,
of which 1.21 billion live in India and 95% live in Asia and Africa combined.
