We believe that NGOs can complement but not replace the over-arching role and primary responsibility of governments to promote equitable human development and wellbeing, to uphold human rights and to protect ecosystems.

We believe that promotion of the role and responsibilities of the private sector will advance human rights and sustainable development, and protect the environment.

We believe that we can address problems and issues that governments and others are unable or unwilling to address on their own. Through constructive challenge, we seek to promote good governance and foster progress towards our goals.

We believe that our mission could be advanced through research, advocacy and programmes.

We believe that in social partnership with other NGOs, institutions and business we can reach greater impact and improve life of individuals and community.
