Who is the system for?
The system is designed for use by seekers of expertise as well as providers, and the Service Provider database is searchable by expertise according to development themes, C4D areas of practice, media/communication routes, countries & regions, languages, and types of services.
What services are provided?
Service Providers offer a wide range of services from consultancy services in strategy, evaluation, research and more, training services, or support services.
Does the C4D Network endorse these C4D Service Providers?
The Network does not endorse any Service Provider but rather offers this service as a signposting service for Network Members to showcase who is available in specific countries and who is providing specific C4D skills.
How does the service work?
The service works in two ways. Our Public Service Providers map is publicly visible to all members and all users of our website. To use the map click on a pin to see a brief summary of a Service Provider and their country base. Zoom in and out of the map to view provider pins more clearly. You can search all Service Providers or use the options to view individuals or institutions only.
Then our Advanced Service Provider map is accessible to individual subscriber members and institutional members. The map includes a detailed search facility (by knowledge, experience and services) and access to full Service Provider details as well as a contact form.
How do I become a Service Provider?
The option to become a Service Provider is offered as part of both our Individual Subscriber Membership and our Institutional Membership which provides full access to the C4D Service Providers System as a profiled Service Provider and/or as an Expertise Searcher.
