Collective Campaign for Peace (COCAP) is a national network of 43 peace and human rights non-governmental organizations from 29 different districts of Nepal. It started as a loose, informal forum in June 2001 and was registered with the government of Nepal as a non-profit, non-political network in December 2002. It aims to provide a common space for its members, volunteers and friends to collectively engage in the pursuit for peace, human rights and justice in Nepal.
Peace Brigades International (pbi) provides protection, support and recognition to at risk human rights defenders (HRDs) who work in areas of repression and conflict around the world. While pbi carries out a range of other activities in support of HRDs including security trainings, advocacy capacity building and policy advocacy work, unarmed protective accompaniment remains at the heart of what the organisation does, testifying to its enduring effectiveness as a protection tool.
NepalMonitor.org is a COCAP protection and conflict prevention initiative, supported by pbi. Originally developed by pbi, it is an innovative tool for the protection of HRDs at risk. Using latest ICT-tools, NepalMonitor.org alerts local organisations in Nepal to human rights and security incidents in their area, and allows anyone to easily share incidents with local, national and international organisations. Contributors and users create a community and engage in cooperative action to protect themselves from human rights abuses and other security threats.
