Tools for Development. A Handbook for Those Engaged in Development Activities.

Tools for Development draws together a range of techniques designed to help DFID officers and others undertake development activities and interventions of any size and kind. This is a manual from which to pick and choose: you may need to employ different skills at different times or several skills at the same time. Some are more likely to be employed at the outset, or in the design stage. Some skills may be employed once; others will need to be revisited and may be revised as the activity or intervention continues. And the skills and techniques you start out with may need to be added to as you progress. This document began life as an attempt to draw together many people s years of experience undertaking development activity. However, many of the skills outlined here, such as those relating to teamworking, facilitating group activity, influencing and negotiating, or conflict reduction, are ones that you will need in everyday life, whether within DFID or outside it. They will prove particularly useful when engaged in team-based and multi-disciplinary work that is becoming increasingly the means by which development activity is delivered.
