Many Dgroups partners participated at the Eldis 20th Anniversary workshop on Digital Knowledge Sharing, held at the Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex, Brighton, UK on 15 and 16 September.

Dgroups representatives Neil Pakenham-Walsh (Chair, Dgroups Foundation) and Ivan Kulis (ECDPM) were delighted to give a presentation on global trends and challenges for Communities of Practice in International Development.

The presentation emphasised the central and growing importance of CoPS in promoting inclusiveness, value and collaboration among all stakeholders.

Neil and Ivan highlighted the role of CoPs in progressively realising the Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 Agenda, which requires “all countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership”.
