Agency for Co-operation and Research in Development (Acord)

The Agency for Co-operation and Research in Development (Acord) is an international Africa-led alliance of groups and individuals that addresses rights and social justice that underlie the poverty of those on the fringes of African societies. ACORD seeks to go beyond addressing the consequences of poverty to understanding, challenging and changing the conditions that cause poverty and exclusion through a global programme that unites practical work with advocacy. ACORD believes that people have a right to a just and equal society, and it is committed to making that right a reality.

Acord works to: strengthen civil society; create conditions for resolving conflict; overcome gender and other forms of discrimination; improve livelihoods; and address the causes and consequences of HIV and AIDS.
