ANGOC actively engages in joint field programs and policy debates with  national governments, intergovernmental organizations (IGOs), and international financial institutions (IFIs).


Mission & Vision: 

The organisation's mission is to create a policy and social environment that enables Asian Rural Poor Communities to exercise their rights to participatory development, gain access to and control of their natural resources, and engage in sustainable livelihoods while drawing from Asia’s rich spiritual and cultural traditions. ANGOC envisions vibrant Asian rural communities living in harmony with nature as stewards of the Earth, whose members are able to realize their full human potentials, collectively chart their path to development, provide for their present and future needs, and equitably share the fruits of their labors in community celebrations of life.
