ACBAR will facilitate coordination mechanisms including the coordination of communication operations.

Goal Strengthen coordination responses, roles and activities to improve member engagement
ABCAR will facilitate advocacy activities through meetings, information sharing, policy discussions, analysis of key trends and issues, publications, and coordinated campaigns. These activities will be conducted at the national and international levels, and will include national NGOs (NNGOs), international (INGOs), donors, partners, and other coordinating bodies. As a coordinating body, ACBAR will represent the interests of its members in all of its work, retaining a global perspective that is relevant at a local level.
Goal Influence policy and represent a strong and united voice for ACBAR members to targeted audiences
ACBAR will collect, analyze, store, and disseminate NGO relevant information to its members. The website, electronic communication and meetings will be the primary methods for disseminating this information.
Goal Strengthen the collection, analysis, storage, and dissemination of information to members
ACBAR will work towards increasing the capacity of its member NGOs to participate in the planning, co-ordination and delivery of humanitarian and development programs in Afghanistan. ACBAR will invest in capacitating its own workforce to build the skills and resources that are needed to support its member NGOs.
Goal Develop the capacity of ACBAR members and local CSOs to be more effective
