The OECD Global Network of Foundations Working for Development (netFWD) is a small group of self-selected foundations committed to optimising and accelerating the impact of philanthropy for development through the sharing of experiences, lesson learning, influencing policy and the development of innovative partnerships.
The Network’s objectives are to provide an innovative platform to enhance members’ collective and individual impact, to promote knowledge sharing and dialogue, to draw lessons from good practices and failures, and to influence policy by contributing and testing new thinking for development.
Through netFWD, the OECD Development Centre provides policy makers, non-state actors, researchers and prominent public figures the opportunity to share their experience on economic and social development policies and to contribute expert analysis to the development policy debate, which goes well beyond the question of aid.
