IDA Membership Benefits

International Development Alliance (IDA) connects people to each other, making the world a bit smaller. We share practice with each other through development of local groups, regional events and conferences and at our annual conference. IDA also coordinates members to learn from each other through a series of study visits, learning exchanges. IDA documents the work that our members are doing around the world by collecting case studies, presentations and tools on community development work and community level initiatives and also by capturing the learning and exchange taking place at local, regional and global events and sharing that information to our members through reports, videos and pictures.
