(APC) A world-wide organisation of like-minded computer networks providing a global communications network dedicated to the free and balanced flow of information.

The APC defends and promotes non-commercial, productive online space for NGOs (Non-Governmental Organisations) and collaborates with like-minded organisations to ensure that the information and communication needs of civil society are considered in telecommunications, donor and investment policy.

A few of APC's partner organisations include The Institute for Global Communications (USA), GreenNet (UK), Nicarao (Nicaragua) Enda-Tiers Monde (Senegal) and GlasNet (Ukraine).
