The International Forum of NGO Platforms (IFP) brings together 55 national NGO platforms from Africa, Latin America, Asia, Europe and Oceania and seven regional coalitions, which together account for more than 21,000 organizations. It was founded at an international conference in Paris in 2008, with the conviction of broadening the space to participate in global debates to defend our vision of a supportive world where human rights are respected, the most vulnerable populations have a voice and inequalities and injustice are fought. This prompted the decision by the national platforms from the five continents to start a cooperative work and joint advocacy.

SKOP is an active member of the Forum since 2008
