Ottawa Dialogue Co-hosts Convener’s Community of Practice Annual Workshop 2020

Ottawa Dialogue partnered with the United States Institute for Peace (USIP) to co-host the Third Annual Convener’s Community of Practice (CCOP) Workshop on January 9th-10th, 2020, in Washington, DC. CCOP is a forum for leaders in the Track II field to exchange views and collaborate on developing best practices. This year’s workshop focussed on the perennial challenge of understanding impact and developing effective approaches to monitoring, evaluation, learning and design in Track II initiatives. Given the theme of this year’s workshop, the discussion benefitted from the participation of representatives of funding organisations. Collaboration between practitioners and the funding community will continue to be critical to unlocking progress in this important area of work.
