Promote connections with other CoPs Mapping of Dgroups  Progressive mapping of Global CoP ecosystem ↑Navigability ↑Alignment ↓Duplication  ↑ collective impact of all CoPs (Dgroups + non-Dgroups) working in international development

2020 Goals By 2020: • All (open) Communities of Practice will be readily visible and searchable by moderators and users.  All (open) CoPs will be able to connect and share seamlessly with one another  All (open) CoPs will be able to harness the collective intelligence of their members (multistakeholder input into policy and practice)

M&E Stats Impact IDS Linked Open Data

Fees: Way forward  With present membership, an increase in partnership contribution to E 5.000 is needed to cover costs. Therefore:  Dgroups Board proposes to increase fees to E. 5000 starting 2015, for organizations with turnover of over 5 million Euro.  From now on, for new small organizations with turnover below 5ME, a reduction of fees is offered, calculated at 0.1% of turnover, limiting the number of Dgroups to a maximum of 12  Below E 150.000 we do not charge, but ask for a formalized "sponsorship" by one of the large members
