Coffee Beans being harvested

ATN is a coalition of civil society organizations, trade unions, researchers, and activists drawn from across Africa working on trade issues. Founded in 1998, ATN has worked on World Trade Organisation-related issues, the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) and other trade and finance-related issues. It seeks to present a coordinated and continent-wide voice that articulates the views of the marginalized and offers alternate policy options relevant for Africa’s development. Notable events at which ATN made its mark included the Seattle, Hong Kong and Cancun WTO conferences where it successfully spearheaded African civil society efforts at preventing the imposition of inimical trade policies on developing countries by developed countries. ATN does its advocacy work at the national, regional, continental and international levels through lobby, capacity building, and campaigns among others. The coalition is currently made up of 50-member organizations from 30 countries in East, West, Central and Southern Africa. TWN-Africa is the secretariat of the Africa Trade Network.
