    • Widen your scope of work by interacting with partners from different geographic areas and diverse background (universities, institutes, public and semi-public bodies, consulting companies, NGOs etc.).
    • Increase your chances of success thanks to the networking capacity and field experience always best acquired on a local level.
    • Enrich your services portfolio: provide studies, evaluations, trainings, consulting services etc. - building on the know-how of other ICA members.
    • Enlarge your clients' base: work with new funding agencies, governments or private funds thanks to joining forces with other partner organisations with relevant experience.
  • All members benefit from a secured access to ICA's knowledge sharing platform, a web-based portal reachable from anywhere, containing:

    • A Project Management Tool facilitating your staff to efficiently and swiftly respond to new opportunities and manage projects from A to Z.
    • An efficient Reference Database and extraction/formatting tool following the requirements of major donors.
    • A constantly growing Database of Experts (currently more than 25.000 CVs), a powerful Expert Search tool and an efficient CV Management tool supporting 6 different CV formats and 3 languages.
    • Customised IT tools that allow you to create stronger links with your best experts (e.g. "My Experts' Circle", the Top Experts tools).
    • A common ICA Library including donor-specific templates (formats required by EU, WB, etc.) and documents based on lessons learned (contracts with experts, pre-bids, consortium agreements, budgets).
    • Join a growing international network of trusted partners that share the same ethics and have created together a standardised way of working.
    • Enjoy a privileged position in the network regarding the sector or country of your expertise, as all ICA members enjoy a veto power vis-à-vis potential competitors that would like to join at a later stage.

    • Take part in thematic communities of practice (ICA Hubs) bringing together top development organisations and top experts working in the same sector (e.g. Education, Environment, Health, Energy, Engineering etc.).
