In 2011, the CSO Partnership for Development Effectiveness (CPDE) was established as an open platform uniting civil society organizations from across the world to address issues of development effectiveness and look beyond traditional modes of development cooperation. In 2017, APN was appointed as co-chair of the CPDE’s Working Group on Fragility and Conflict and a member of the Rural Constituency. APN was therefore invited to participate in technical consultations and to collect data and produce research papers on priority issues.
