Your new role
The national network "Red Nacional en Democracia y Paz (RNDP)" is an association of about 90 smaller grassroots organizations working all over the country. The member organizations are organized into six regional nodes and work in areas such as peacebuilding, human rights, political participation and democracy, and environmental conflicts. The RNDP promotes exchange among member organizations and is also intended to strengthen the organizations' political advocacy.
