COSV adheres to numerous networks (being often amongst the promoters) that link actors and subjects different for identity and purpose. We are convinced that forms of aggregation and collaboration, that allow to share skills and competencies, are essential to improve the quality of cooperation initiatives and to address the complex problems posed by the needs of partners and beneficiaries.


Link2007, that gathers the major Italian NGOs, is the most important network to which COSV adheres. In addition, COSV adheres to the platform of Mediterranean and Middle East, CoLomba – Association of NGOs of Lombardy, SISCOS – Association for insurance operators , GONG network (Italian NGOs in Mozambique) and numerous others, including country-specific groups.


Moreover, through Link2007, COSV is part of the National Council for Development Cooperation, IAP – Institute for Advertising Self-Regulation, Third Sector Forum, ASviS and Social Value Italia.
