We are a core group of partners seeking to ensure that this initiative gains momentum and influence through exchanges with the people, programmes and organizations in our combined networks and membership of other platforms and networks. In the process, we seek synergies and complementarities with other initiatives and entities whose thematic areas overlap, offering specific skills and experience, focusing on certain countries in different language zones as opportunities for cooperation with various stakeholders at local level arise.

What binds us are principles of honesty, professional integrity, transparency, equity including gender perspectives, as well as respect for local cultures, knowledge and values as long as they do not run counter to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
