LACCoS's functioning sectors are guided by its preamble, but it is flexible to extend its operational area to incorporate issue-based interventions for addressing current changing scenarios as well as conservation needs.

LACCoS has adopted multidisciplinary approaches in addressing the research and developmental needs of the region.

Working Approach

LACCoS works with a multi-stakeholder partnership approach, with financial and technical support from its partner organizations. The organization works as a facilitator to promote good governance, advocacy, health and sanitation, climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction, and biodiversity conservation among community groups. LACCoS also supports building leadership capacity in women, and socially underprivileged and vulnerable groups, including the poor, Dalit, and janjati.

Specifically, LACCoS:

  • Works with a multi-stakeholder partnership approach: This means that LACCoS works with a variety of partners, including government agencies, local communities, and international organizations. This approach allows LACCoS to leverage the strengths of each partner and to achieve its goals more effectively. 
  • Works as a facilitator: LACCoS does not simply implement projects on its own. Instead, the organization works to facilitate the participation of community groups in the planning, implementation, and monitoring of projects. This approach helps to ensure that projects are relevant to the needs of the community and that they are sustainable.
  • Promotes good governance, advocacy, health and sanitation, climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction, and biodiversity conservation: LACCoS works to promote these issues through a variety of activities, including training, workshops, and advocacy campaigns. The organization also works to build the capacity of community groups to address these issues themselves.
  • Supports building leadership capacity in women, and socially underprivileged and vulnerable groups: LACCoS believes that it is important to empower women and other marginalized groups. The organization does this by providing training, opportunities for leadership, and support for advocacy.
