How to use this guide

The resources are organized using a framework comprising six main sections, most of which have a number of subsections. Up to five resources are presented in each section or subsection, along with separate case studies where available.

Each section contains a brief introductory paragraph, plus one or two featured resources that are relevant to several of its subsections and provide a good introduction to the topic area. Some sections also feature a general resources subsection, where resources covering a number of subsection topics are presented.

Where possible, both introductory and more comprehensive resources are included for each topic. For each resource, a short description outlines its purpose, what it covers, and who it is aimed at. Especially relevant chapters are indicated. Publication details and document size are also given, along with a hyperlink to the resource.

Most subsections also contain country-specific reports or case study documents that complement the more general nature of most of the key resources. Where country case studies feature prominently within main resources, these are highlighted in the resource description.

Linked themes between sections and subsections, and resources that are relevant to a number of subsections, are highlighted and hyperlinked. In a few cases where specific resources are relevant to multiple subsections, the resource details are included in full in each subsection where relevant.

The sidebar menu on every page can be used to move between sections of the guide.

The pdf version of the guide is available here.
