Best Practice Forums

Research-based forum were first held on a regular basis at ACWA from 2003. By the end of 2012 the ACWA Research Forums were re-configured and re-badged the ACWA Best Practice Forum. This reconfiguration was made in an effort to deliberately use forums for strategic sector capacity building, by presenting research and practice knowledge on key areas. Specific topics were identified at the beginning of the year, and these reflected issues being identified as key sector issues, by member agencies, as well as current relevant research.

As a tool for learning and knowledge development of the NGO sector, these sessions are now video recorded to ensure access by members not able to attend in person.
