The NGO Forum is founded on the belief that broad based, nation-wide, citizen partcipation is necessary for sustainable national development, and its mission is predicated on structured citizen action through civil society organisations. Further, it is the belief of the members of the NGO Forum that civil society organisations have an equal, and as important, role as the goverment and private sector in national development; and that civil society, along with government and private sector, should work towards a tripartite approach to national policy making.
