Next Generation for Development

Next Generation – Collaboration for Development was a joint program of the Canadian Council for International Co-operation (CCIC) and the Canadian Association for the Study of International Development (CASID).

Next Generation aimed to position Canada as a leader in innovative, multi-stakeholder international development and humanitarian research, practice and policy development. The goal was to encourage better collaborations between civil society and academia, and strengthen the Canadian ecosystem of research and knowledge sharing.

To facilitate collaborations, we need a better sense of who the different groups and individuals in this ecosystem are – both within and beyond CCIC-CASID respective memberships. Visit the Next Generation Database for more details!

NextGen Database Updated!

In our second phase (2019), NextGen teamed up with the Sustainable Development Solutions Network Canada to link research in Canada to relevant Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by mapping areas of research around the SDGs/ Agenda 2030. NextGen mapped areas of research to the SDGs agenda to identify how researchers in Canada contribute to the implementation and understanding of the SDGs.

Given the universality of Agenda 2030, the NextGen Database expanded its mandate to include researchers beyond the international development and humanitarian fields. It now includes researchers working on domestic issues related to SDGs.

The NextGen Database also increased its number of profiles by 35%.
