The Bellagio Publishing Network is an informal association of organisations and individuals committed to strengthening indigenous publishing and book development in the south, particularly Africa.

The Network includes publishers, both government and private donor organisations, and others who are concerned with books and publishing, providing a forum for discussion and collaboration on publishing and book development activities. The Network evolved out of an international conference on publishing and development in the south held at the Rockefeller Center in Bellagio, Italy in 1991.

The Secretariat, based in Oxford, England co-ordinates the day-to-day business of the Network. It organises meetings, publishes the Bellagio Publishing Network Newsletter, and is responsible for the Bellagio Studies in Publishing Series. The Network aims to provide a base of practical information, knowledge, and theory about publishing and book development.
