Structure

Action for Peace and Development has three boards:

– The General Assembly of all members. It is the Supreme Board.

The Leading Team composed of the Legal Representative, the Deputy Legal Representative, the Coordinator and the Executive Secretary. This board acts as the Board of Directors.

The Executive Committee composed of the Executive Secretary, Heads of Commissions and their deputies, Project Managers, and the Finances Manager.
Action for Peace and Development allows and encourages its members to work with a team spirit so that its work should be measured through the accomplishments of each commission.

Here are the commissions on which the work of APD is axed:
* The commission in charge of Peace and Democracy issues that has as mission to organize exchange spaces on the different themes regarding peace, governance, education etc that are regularly held once a month. It also gives orientation of actions related to strengthening peace.
