The Collaborative Group is a working group of project managers from each of the member Cooperative Development Organizations. The purpose of the CG is to promote collaboration, knowledge and best practice sharing, and to conduct cross-sectoral research to improve cooperative development programming.
The CG meets monthly to work on collaborative research, share CDO updates, and learn about Cooperative Development topics. In addition to these monthly meetings, the Collaborative Group holds an annual Learning Workshop to debrief the programming successes and challenges, plan for the upcoming year, and establish shared goals. The CG also hosts occasional webinars and lectures on specific USAID and Cooperative Development topics.
