TWP CoP Washington DC Working Group

The TWP Community of Practice DC Working Group is an informal group of development practitioners who work to ensure that development efforts better understand and engage with the local contexts in which we operate, utilizing a thinking and working politically (TWP) approach. We are a volunteer group, consisting of individuals who work mainly, but not exclusively, in organizations that design and implement US Government funded development efforts. Our objectives are learning, coordination, and advocacy of all things TWP. The TWP COP DC Working Group organizes events and creates knowledge products on a wide variety of topics related to TWP. In the last year, events included a fireside chat with COPs from three USAID projects on operationalizing TWP as well as a discussion on integrating TWP in biodiversity projects.
