Bellanet promotes and facilitates effective collaboration within the international community, especially through the use of ICTs.
"International development practices are complex and require openness, flexibility and the ability to work in partnership with others. Bellanet aims to support effective development practice by sharing its expertise in information and communication technologies as well as its skills in facilitating organizational learning and the sharing of knowledge.
While Bellanet does not offer grants or loans, it delivers its program through three main Program Lines: Online Communities, Knowledge Sharing and Open Development. Together they represent key approaches to building institutional and individual collaboration skills and maximizing the potential of ICTs to support collaborative development work."
