Research to assess Canadian international development expertise

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on 27 May 2019

The Canadian Association of International Development Professionals (CAIDP) is conducting research to assess Canada's current landscape of expertise related to Canada's foreign policy priorities, particularly Canada's Feminist International Assistance Policy (FIAP). The objective is to gain a comprehensive understanding of the expertise available in various thematic areas. Furthermore, we would like to assess how experts find consultancy/programming opportunities and how institutions source their pools of experts.  To that end two surveys have been developed:

Survey for individual experts:

Survey for institutions that are involved in international development projects:

We kindly ask for your cooperation to complete the survey that applies to you. The completion of either survey should take no longer than 15 minutes.

As you may know CAIDP is a volunteer non-profit organization seeking to ensure effective international development through enhanced participation of Canadian development professionals from the private sector, NGOs and Academia promoting Canadian excellence in achieving international sustainable development results.  This research aligns with such purpose.

If you have any questions and/or concerns in relation to these surveys, please do not hesitate to contact CAIDP Executive Assistant: Nicole Leguerrier, Nicole can then put you in contact with Maria Calcano and Allison Thorne, the researchers that are working for CAIDP in this project.
