IBON initiates and implements international programs, develops and hosts international networks, initiates and participates in international advocacy campaigns, and establishes regional and country offices. IBON strengthens links between local campaigns and advocacies to international initiatives. At the national and sub-national levels, IBON brings development issues from the international arena in a way that peoples’ organizations and social movements can engage with them. At the regional and international levels, IBON organizes and co-sponsors parallel and alternative civil society events that engage with those sponsored by governments and international organizations. The main objective of IBON in such activities is to provide a venue for CSOs to express and build consensus around their concerns and demands, engage official processes meaningfully and forge cooperation for strengthened campaigns.
