CONCORDThe European confederation of Relief and Development NGOs
Who we are
CONCORD is the European confederation of Relief and Development NGOs. We are made up of member organisations: 28 national associations, 24 international networks and 3 associate members that represent more than 2,600 NGOs, supported by millions of citizens across Europe. We are a member-led organisation which means that the members give the strategic direction of the confederation.
CONCORD envisions a world where people enjoy their right to live free of poverty and exploitation as well as their right to enjoy well-being and equality. This must be achieved by a citizen-led transformative agenda based on social justice and gender equality and respecting diversity and the limits of our planetary capacity.
CONCORD members work together to ensure that:
- European policies promote sustainable economic, social and human development, addressing the causes of poverty, and based on human rights, gender equality, justice and democracy.
- The rights and responsibilities of citizens and organised civil society to influence those representing them in governments and EU institutions, are promoted and respected.
