    Organizational structure: APC is both a network and an organisation. The membership define APC’s strategic priorities every five years. APC has a small staff, each living in different countries and communicating day-to-day over the internet (we have no central headquarters). APC’s value and uniqueness come from the local perspectives and contact with grassroots organisations that we gain from our members and the fact that we operate as a truly virtual, international organisation.
    Number and type of members: APC members are groups working in their own countries to advance the same mission as APC. In December 2010, APC had 50 members in 35 countries, the majority from developing countries.
    Funding structure:
  • Membership fees or dues
  • Fees for providing consulting or research services
  • Donations and grants from domestic sources
  • Foreign and international grants
