Our governance

GPPAC is governed by its member organisations at different levels.

Regionally, GPPAC is governed by Regional Steering Groups. Each GPPAC region is coordinated by a Regional Secretariat, and has a Regional Representative. Both are chosen by regional member organisations.

Globally, GPPAC is governed by an International Steering Group. The International Steering Group consists of the Regional Representatives of each of the regional networks, and up to six representatives of international NGOs.

GPPAC also has working groups, made up of members from around the world. Each working group has a chosen Chair, who is part of GPPAC's Global Strategy Group. The Global Strategy Group advises the network on GPPAC's overall strategic directions and policies.

The network is supported by the Global Secretariat, which operates under the GPPAC Foundation, registered and based in the Netherlands. The Global Secretariat supports the work of the governance and operational bodies of the GPPAC network, primarily the Board, International Steering Group, Global Strategy Group, Working groups and Regional Secretariats.
