The Collective Campaign for Peace (COCAP) is a national network of peace and human rights organisations in Nepal. It started as a loose, informal forum in June 2001. Currently, COCAP has forty four member organizations. It has a large number of volunteers who actively involve themselves in various aspects of its work.

COCAP aims to provide a common space for its members, volunteers and friends to collectively engage in the pursuit of peace, human rights and justice in Nepal. It organises national/regional level campaigns and programmes on the issues of conflict transformation and peacebuilding, transitional justice and social security in coordination with its member organisations and other like-minded organisations.

The mission of COCAP is to contribute to the promotion of a culture of peace and justice in Nepal. It seeks to achieve this through a network of socially committed and financially transparent civil society organisations from Nepal, and by undertaking effective and coordinated initiatives for conflict transformation and peacebuilding.
