Wiki site Capacity Assesment & Dev't, ICCO-CAD group advisors

Dear ICCO colleagues,

This is to let you know, that the CAD group wiki site is ready. It contains more general information about the ICCO CAD –group. This is a group of ICCO Capacity Development advisors working in Asia, Eastern Europe, Africa and Latin America It also has references to literature, websites, case studies, toolboxes.

Please have a look at:

We also started a blog. It contains news about some of the discussions which are going on.

* The purpose of this wiki site is to build a kind of library to make information available for ICCA capacity development advisors on the long term.
* It also has the purpose to inform new ICCO advisors to get involved into this network.
* And it is a kind of platform to communicate with other ICCO departments, and other organisations.

If you would like to know what a wiki is, just view the video about wikis:

the example of 4 people who go camping. It explains how wiki collaboration is much easier than a flow of e-mails to and through.
You can find the video one wiki’s here:
