Promising Practices

We have provided 43 examples of 'Promising practices’ in this section for you to read or download. They link the Guidelines and Moving Forward to work that is already happening ‘on the ground’.

You can browse by geographic region or by one of the 15 focus themes.

We called them ‘promising’ practices rather than ‘best’ practices, as they describe the type of ‘promising’ development the Guidelines encourage. We’ve provided at least two ‘promising practice’ examples from different regions of the world and we hope to have reflected the richness and diversity of ‘promising practice’ internationally.

The examples were selected through an extensive consultation process. Inclusion does not represent an endorsement from the handbook authors as to their on-going quality.
