Useful Resources

This list is one of those things that will always be a work in progress! I will keep on adding to it. Do write in with your favourite ‘go-to’ sites for resources on various development issues and we can enhance this list together. Names of all contributors will be mentioned .

Note: The focus here is on websites that offer rich and easily accessible information in the form of policies, guidelines, manuals, significant reports, commentaries, briefs and other documents. I am listing only those websites that go beyond a specific organisational context and are valuable resources by themselves.
