IAP2 Around the World

IAP2 members work in industry, civil society organisations, universities, government and more. They are involved in the public participation process by supporting clients, colleagues and citizens for improved decision-making and promote best practice through the three IAP2 Pillars – the Core Values, Code of Ethics, and Spectrum of Public Participation.

In addition to the global, IAP2 International organisation, IAP2 has several active regions around the world. Each region hosts networking, professional development, and training opportunities.
