Development Practice Committee (DPC)

The ACFID Development Practice Committee (DPC) is an expert advisory group where learning and development practitioners from the not-for-profit sector meet to:

  • Lead good practice within the sector
  • Undertake applied research and development of tools and processes
  • Provide relevant advice to ACFID on key issues around development effectiveness affecting the sector
  • Engage with DFAT on development effectiveness practice

RDI Network has worked in partnership with the DPC to create the following learning papers.

Faith, sexual orientation, gender identity and the ACFID Code of Conduct

The Australian Council for International Development’s (ACFID) Code of Conduct now gives specific acknowledgement to ‘marginalisation due to gender identity and sexual orientation’ as a factor that can contribute to increased exclusion and inequity.
This paper reports on an action learning project undertaken by the Sexual Rights in Development Community of Practice in recognition of the challenges and possibilities that this acknowledgment might present for ACFID members.
