This month's highlight
Highlightihg a theme that GDRC is currently working on
Sustainable Tourism:
ustainable tourism in its purest sense, is an industry which attempts to make a low impact on the environment and local culture, while helping to generate income, employment, and the conservation of local ecosystems. It is responsible tourism that is both ecologically and culturally sensitive.

To highlight this theme, GDRC set up the Sustainable Tourism Gateway on 27 September 2008 - the World Tourism Day. The objective of the Gateway is to develop awareness and educate on issues related to sustainable tourism; to assist in policy and programme development; and to facilitate monitoring and evaluation.

It is a web tool that provides easy and rapid access to information and networking on sustainable tourism and related topics.

Alphabetical listing of GDRC's work themes
This month's random alphabet, is N. Among the programme themes and projects handled by GDRC under "N" include:

■  NGO Fund Raising Strategies
As the programmes and projects of NGOs expand, the need for money to run their operations becomes all the more critical. Much of this comes from third party funding organizations, either in the country where the NGO operates, or in OECD countries that assist projects in developing countries.

This feature of GDRC's NGO Cafe was created to collate current thinking and resources on the topic. Please note that these are strategies for fund raising in general, and GDRC itself does not disburse funds to NGOs.

Other themes under "N":
