Welcome to the community of development practitioners in Europe and Central Asia!
We believe strengthened partnerships and effective development cooperation can help accelerate action towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Recognizing current challenges, UNDP is launching this virtual community of practice, offering a platform for exchanging ideas, experiences and peer-to-peer learning to our partner development assistance providers in the region.
ODA Learning Series 2020
We are pleased to announce the launch of the ODA Learning Series 2020, co-organized by UNDP and OECD. An exciting line-up of webinars featuring distinguished guests, partners and colleagues who will share their experiences and insights on wide-ranging topics that you expressed interest in; from development cooperation in a pandemic to strategic communications to advancing green finance for sustainable development. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s ODA Learning Series is adapted to an online format. And because there is only so much we can cover in one hour webinar, we would like to invite you to join this space to continue the discussions and explore the ideas further.
About the ODA Series
Since 2014, UNDP Istanbul Regional Hub has organized a series of events under the initiative ODA Capacity Development Series for New and Emerging Donors for its partner ODA providers in the region. All events were delivered at the request and based on the priorities of the partners, often hosted by them, on ODA relevant technical and thematic areas such as monitoring and evaluation, reporting, private sector engagement, green and alternative finance, skills development and more.
The Community of Practice is open to all development practitioners from official development assistance (ODA) providers in Europe and Central Asia region. ODA providers from other regions as well as UNDP and OECD colleagues are welcome to join relevant discussions.
