Dear C4D Community,

As a member of a Collaboration for Development (C4D) (C4D) group, we wanted to let you know about a change to the C4D “Messages” feature impacting non-World Bank Group members.
• Effective June 19, 2019, non-World Bank Group members will no longer be able to send a message to the entire group from within C4D.
• Beginning in August 2019, non-World Bank Group members will no longer be able to send a “Message” to individual C4D members by email from within C4D. They will still be able to send a “Message” to individual C4D members internally through the C4D messaging function.
• They will still be able to receive group messages from C4D community managers.

These changes do not apply to World Bank Group members. Thank you for helping us keep the entire C4D community active and secure.

Note: IFC and MIGA staff are not impacted by this change.

If you have any questions about this change, please contact your community manager.

Best regards,

World Bank C4D Team

HELLO!

Welcome to our Collaboration for Development (C4D) Platform. This new C4D Platform hosts and co-hosts over 100 external, social collaboration Groups, Communities of Practice (CoPs), Subgroups, and Online Collaboration Spaces. The C4D hosts thousands of members and over one million visitors annually from all over the globe. Our focus is on strengthening Connections, Collaboration, and Communications between World Bank Group staff and non-World Bank colleagues on a wide range of timely and topical global, regional, and local development issues.

Visitors can view content in our “Public” Groups. We encourage visitors to become “Members” of C4D, this allows them to add content to the groups, to reply, comment, share and learn, in short, to become an active participant in collaborative dialogue. Members can join one or more “Public” Groups or ask to join “Private” Groups. The community Managers/Moderators will determine who can join a “Private” Group. Some are restricted to a targeted set of practitioners. Others are more open to new member requests.

Please sign up for a C4D account and then start discovering and exploring the groups.
