TUDEP – a practical Tool for improving the Quality of Development Cooperation

TU Development Effectiveness Profile (TUDEP) is a learning tool meant to support trade unions worldwide in the application of the effectiveness principles in their everyday development cooperation practice developed by the Trade Union Development Cooperation Network in 2010.

The main objective of the TUDEP tool is to contribute to the improvement of the quality and effectiveness of the development cooperation work of trade unions by helping partners to reflect on their practice as well as the principles and values that underpin their work. It also helps to facilitate the monitoring and evaluation of the progress in the use of the principles and guidelines for trade union development effectiveness.

TUDEP is based on a questionnaire that is automatically evaluated and analysed in an active excel document. It is designed as a self-assessment tool that can be used by either individual trade union actors or in a collective process of review and reflection. It is meant to be used in a proactive and interactive way, as part of an on-going process of learning and improvement. While TUDEP was elaborated by and for trade unions, it can be used for reflection and inspiration by other development actors as well. It has been created in frame of the Open Forum process on CSO Development Effectiveness.
