ABOUT NEAR.

We are a movement of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) from the global south rooted in our communities who share a common goal of promoting fair, equitable and dignified partnerships in the current aid system. Our vision is to ensure genuine local participation at all levels of development and disaster management, and that effective aid is delivered to people in need.

A world where local communities have the capacity, resources and agency to address the challenges that impact them.
To work towards restructuring the global response to human, economic and environmental challenges so that actions to address these are locally driven and owned, and promote equitable, dignified and accountable partnerships.
WHAT WE DO

Advocacy

We enhance policy-level and operational collaboration between local and national organisations. We aim to increase local influence on decision-making at international, regional and national policy level through advocacy, networking and communication.

Organisational Development

We offer a platform for collaboration, along with learning and resources to strengthen the organisational capacity of our members as well as their accountability and preparedness to respond to the needs of their communities.

Financing

We advocate for increased access to direct funding for local and national organisations. As part of this we are exploring the design of innovative financing models including piloting independent, pooled funding mechanisms at country levels guided by the network.

Research

Working with civil society organisations by actively promoting their work through research and evidence-based publications
