Our Regional Structure



The regional structure of IPS reflects the need to strike a balance between global coordination, on the one hand, and local direction, implementation and execution, on the other. Our global structure is anchored by the IPS International Association, a non-profit, international non-governmental organisation (INGO), registered in Rome (Italy), where IPS’ headquarters are based.

Four autonomous and locally-owned entities in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America
and North America operate within the IPS group:

 


With IPS also active in these regions:

Market the IPS news service to regional media subscribers, in order to raise income from market sources and increase readership and dissemination
Initiate, promote and execute content-provision, capacity-building and networking and dissemination activities at the regional and local level
Organize media events for regional audiences, often in partnership with local civil society organizations, donors, policy-makers, media and other organizations
