Affinity Group of National Associations

The AGNA network brings together national associations and regional platforms from around the world to foster greater cooperation across national and regional boundaries, including innovating new ways for civil society organisations to collaborate.

By strengthening the power of people to organise, mobilise and take action, AGNA builds meaningful opportunities for networks to come together to participate in and influence global governance institutions and processes.

Our priorities

AGNA’s new five-year strategic plan (2017 – 2022) aims to meet the emerging challenges that the network faces, and to continue playing an important role for the CIVICUS alliance in realising its mission and objectives. The plan also aims to provide a focused approach to develop and strengthen AGNA, and build a more effective and sustainable network.
