Based in Geneva, the Forum has a Steering Committee which meets at least four times a year. It is composed of representatives of member organisations, elected at the Annual General Meeting for a two-year term, and co-opted members who meet specialised NGO Forum needs. The Forum’s activities and its Secretariat are financed by membership subscriptions and donor support.
