The Collective for Research on Training & Development Action CRTD.A has a dynamic and flexible team of highly specialized researchers, trainers and practitioners who are able to respond to diverse needs and changing environments. Our team draws on varied and extensive skills and experiences from across the region. What makes us unique is our ability to operate effectively in the different cultural and linguistic environments of the Middle East. An advantage of CRTD-A's is our ability to tap into our vast network of key scholars, researchers and practitioners across the Arab World. Furthermore, CRTD-A is guided by a voluntary International Advisory Board (IAB) of highly regarded gender and development experts.
