In 2019, CDA marked two significant and noteworthy milestones: the 20-year anniversary of the paradigm-shifting “Do No Harm” framework and the 25th year as an action research and advisory organization dedicated to positive, systemic change for people experiencing conflict and fragility. To celebrate these milestones, we launched the CDA 20/25 Campaign to say thank you to the CDA network, listen to and share stories of impact, and look to the big questions on the horizon.

We enjoyed celebrating the CDA 20/25 milestones with many of you, including with our friends at Local Capacities for Peace International in Nairobi, a partner on this journey from our first collaborative learning project. We also celebrated in our hometown, Boston, Massachussetts, as well as Washington D.C. We look forward to ongoing collaboration, storytelling, and exciting unknowns with you in the years ahead.
