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.

The opinions expressed in CDA Perspectives Blog are those of the author and are not representative of CDA.
