CDA Collaborative Learning Projects, Inc.
CDA Collaborative Learning Projects (CDA) is a non-profit organization committed to improving the effectiveness of those who work to provide humanitarian assistance, engage in peace practice, support sustainable development, and conduct corporate operations in a socially responsible manner. We combine rigorous analysis with pragmatic field-level work and deliver practical tools to field staff and policymakers alike.
Our vision is a future where communities and nations demonstrate resilience, drive their own development, and resolve conflicts without resorting to armed violence.
CDA’s mission is to advance that vision by supporting the application of lessons from collaborative learning processes to improve effective and accountable engagements that result in significant, positive, lasting change for people and societies.
CDA is widely recognized for its established expertise in the professional fields of Accountability and Feedback Loops, Conflict Sensitivity/Do No Harm,Peacebuilding Effectiveness, and Responsible Business.
Our expertise is rooted in evidence-based collaborative learning projects, and in the extensive advisory work, that we have completed and continue to perform. Throughout the years we have worked in more than seventy conflict-affected and fragile contexts!
CDA is based in the United States, but now has an office in Myanmar, which was established to support local application of conflict-sensitivity practices.
