Adaptive development

Share learning, interesting research and discuss your experiences on adaptive development

The concept of "adaptive development" is currently much discussed in NGO, donor and academic circles. However, there is little consensus on what being adaptive means in practice or how it can contribute to improved development outcomes over the long-term.

In 2015-2016 the DFID PPA Learning Partnership and Bond convened a learning series exploring the implications of integrating adaptive approaches into development work and produced a publication Adaptive Management: What it means for CSOs. Bond is exploring other ways to foster learning and discussion on this topic, we welcome your suggestions! Please use the workspace to:

  • share your experiences
  • highlight interesting research and learning from others
  • access information about upcoming events
