The CDA Perspectives Blog is maintained by CDA Collaborative Learning Projects (CDA). It is intended to share reflections, present information and provoke debate and conversation. On the blog, we share personal experiences of working towards improving impacts of interventions in contexts of conflict and fragility, and findings from collaborative learning projects. In most cases, we discuss issues related to CDA’s practice areas. In addition to our staff contributors, we invite colleagues and partners to share their experiences, and host blog post series.

Guest authors featured on the CDA Perspectives Blog write in their personal capacity and the opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect those of CDA or of the other authors who participate in this forum.
