Communities of Practice

Communities of Practice provide a means for ACFID Members to come together to share, learn, collaborate and advocate around a particular subject area. They include a focus on a country or region (e.g. Pacific, Syria), a sector (e.g. education, disaster risk reduction) or an operational area (e.g. human resources, finance).

Communities of Practice are member led and run, with the support of two co-convenors and the energy and commitment of interested members. They interact through My ACFID's Collaborate platform, an online space for collaboration, planning and information sharing.

If you're interested in joining a Communities of Practice or creating an account in Collaborate, please contact Moti Goode.

For more information on their ways of working see the ACFID Community of Practice Operational Guidelines.
