CDA Collaborative Learning Projects

Practical Learning for International Action

CDA is working toward a paradigm shift in the humanitarian, development, and peacebuilding sectors. Sitting at the intersection of applied research, global policy, and local practice, we develop strategies and programs that are locally-driven, grounded in a systemic understanding of the complexity of fragile and conflict-affected contexts, and based on evidence and context-specific theories of change.

Across the humanitarian, development, and peacebuilding nexus, how we work is just as important as what we do.

How we work

Flagship Collaborative Learning Projects

In peacebuilding and development partnerships, what enables responsible INGO transitions that make way for increased local leadership and ownership?

In contexts facing the dual threats of climate hazards and conflict, how can aid actors and peacebuilders address environmental change and conflict together?

What risk management policies and practices help – or hinder – teams and organizations to deliver humanitarian aid to people in need?
