The Arab NGO Network for Development (ANND) was established in June 1996, with the membership of 45 network and non-governmental organization from 12 Arab countries. The initiative for establishing ANND came from a group of Lebanese and Tunisian civil society organizations that met in 1993, during one of the preparatory meetings for the International Social Development Summit that took place in Copenhagen, in 1995.

ANND is an advocacy group. Since its establishment, it has worked extensively on strengthening and shaping the role of civil society organizations in the Arab countries. Currently, ANND has three main programs :

  • development program
  • democracy program
  • globalization and trade program

In all the aforementioned areas, ANNDs’ objectives are raising awareness and building the capacities of its members and other civil society groups. It aims at achieving that through seven main strategies : research, networking, campaigning, media and communication, lobbying, capacity building of its member organizations and active participation in relevant global and local meetings and events.
