Organizational Structure

The COCAP Structure

Nepali non-governmental organizations working for peace and human rights are eligible to apply for COCAP membership. All the members are part of the general assembly, which is the apex decision-making body. The general assembly is held once a year to review the past and revise policies, plans and programs for the future. The general assembly decides in its annual meetings the number of new memberships to be granted in the next year and about the elimination of the members from the network if they are found not adhering to COCAP’s vision, mission, goal and objectives. Currently, COCAP has 43 member organizations. Each member organization and COCAP have agreed to the policy of forging issue-based alliances with as many human rights, peace and social organizations as possible.

COCAP has a 15-member central executive committee. The general assembly elects 14 members whereas a volunteer representative is elected to the committee through volunteers’ general assembly. The executive committee meets every three months. COCAP has five regional committees, one in each development region. The general assembly elects the regional chairperson while members of the respective regions choose the regional secretary and treasurer. The regional chairperson is also a member of the central executive committee. All other organizations of the region are members of the regional committee.

The volunteers elect their own body as volunteer core group to coordinate the volunteers and systematize voluntary campaigns. Volunteer core groups are functioning in national as well as all regional secretariats.
