CONCORD is the European confederation of Relief and Development NGOs. We are made up of member organisations:  28 national associations, 18 international networks and 2 associate members that represent over 2,400 NGOs, supported by millions of citizens across Europe.

We are the main interlocutor with the EU institutions on development policy.

We are a not for profit organisation, registered under Belgian law as an a.i.s.b.l - Association Internationale Sans But Lucratif - (An international not for profit association).

History and name:

We were founded in 2003 by development NGOs from across Europe. Our organisational name CONCORD is an acronym based on 'CONfederation for COoperation of Relief and Development NGOs'.

You can read about our work and achievements over the last 10 years in the special anniversary publication.

Vision and Mission:

Our vision is of a world in which poverty and inequality have been ended; in which decisions are based on social justice, gender equality and upon our responsibility to future generations; where every person has the right to live in dignity, on an equal basis, free from poverty and sustainability.

CONCORD works to ensure that:

The EU and member states are fully committed to and implement comprehensive and coherent policies towards the developing world that are based on the principles of solidarity, human rights, justice and democracy, and which aim to address the causes of poverty and conflict and promote sustainable economic and social development.

The European NGDO movement is active and fully engaged in promoting EU policies that have a positive impact on developing countries and have the capacity to influence the direction of these policies.

The role of the NGDOs is valued and protected as an authentic voice of European civil society that is engaged in issues of development and global justice.
