Actions should result in an enabling environment for NSA networks and in a more effective representation of the causes promoted by their members in dialogues with institutional interlocutors and other stakeholders.(3) Actions led at regional, continental and global level by relevant NSA networks, tackling problems common to more than one region (e.g. desertification, migration, water management, HIV/AIDS).
