This website has been designed especially to help professionals working under difficult conditions in developing countries. Communications there are often expensive, and telephone lines and computer equipment for internet connections slow. Web-pages with pop-ups and audio-visual or moving images consume extra, costly, energy. Website texts are therefore presented here on a plain background. First-line files are always simple text files, to speed up navigation within the website. Photographs, drawings, illustrations, charts and graphs can be viewed "on demand".
Search engines rank this website as a leading resource on a wide range of development-related issues.
