Fanning the Flame: The CDAC Network – A Movement for Change (2009 – 2014) charts the story of the CDAC Network to date, from the now infamous ‘pub meeting’ in New York in 2009 to the Network’s first Members’ Council in May 2014. It tells the story of the Network’s formative years; a time of forming and storming as the diverse Membership set about building a movement for fundamental change in the way the humanitarian sector operates.
The report has been written by Ros Tennyson, of the Partnership Brokers Association, and is the first output of the Network’s new Results and Learning Framework. This Framework encourages story telling as a way of making sense of complex collaborative processes. The CDAC Network believes that we need to learn how to maximise our collaborative advantage because multi-stakeholder and cross-sector collaborations are still relatively new delivery mechanisms in the humanitarian sector, and we need to learn how to do them better.
