Development Cooperation Handbook/How you can participate in TVP

The Vrinda Project is a knowledge sharing action: it creates a peer-to-peer cooperative environment where development actors share their experiences, express their views and enable each other to better tackle development cooperation issues.
Besides development workers, our expected audience are the media professionals desiring to communicate international cooperation issues that enable the general viewer to make informed choices while politically and economically supporting policy makers and international organizations.

If you want to participate in this project, this is how you can contribute, by disseminating the resources produced and cooperating in their improvement and expansion. Here are some practical indications on how you can "come on board". Welcome!
