Ong Ngo - IFP

Welcome!


The International Forum of national NGO Platforms (IFP) brings together over 50 national NGO platforms (NPF) from Africa, Latin America, Asia, Europe and Oceania and 7 regional coalitions(RC), which together account for more than 10,000 organizations. It was founded at the International conference of NPF in Paris in 2008. The IFP wishes to be a representative network of NGO NPFs and regional coalitions acting at global level in order to contribute to Development, Peace and Justice throughout the world.

The IFP aims to create conditions enabling NGOs to get effectively involved in global governance, so that they can influence international negotiations regarding development, human rights and inter­national solidarity. 2012 was an important year for the IFP’s structuring, with the election of its new Council.  The IFP also reviewed its communication strategy and following this, we are happy to send you the first issue of the IFP’s online newsletter, a quarterly publication.

If you wish to share any information with the IFP members or other actors and include it in the newsletter, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can also follow us through our website www.ong-ngo.org and Twitter @ong_ngo

Enjoy the reading!
