We are a membership-driven, non-profit company, limited by guarantee whose membership is open to registered international non-governmental organizations (INGOs), national non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and community-based organizations (CBOs) with a shared interest in conservation and management of natural resources.

Although the conservation NGOs complement government efforts outside protected areas, there is a multiplicity of processes and frameworks designed to facilitate conservation, and coordination amongst non-state actors are limited or lacking. We ensure there is effective coordination and strengthen the capacity of our members through cross-learning opportunities, participate in policymaking dialogue, and contribute to appropriate negotiations at national, regional, and international levels.

We offer a common platform to our members, combine our assets and expertise together stakeholder for increased accountability and transparency; to encourage innovation and knowledge-sharing through collaboration, communication to improve natural resources governance in mitigating the threats and challenges experienced today
