The Department for International Development (DFID), tbe British government agency responsible for promoting economic development and reducing poverty, has created Livelihoods Connect, a Website devoted to "creating sustainable livelihoods to eliminate poverty." Through distance learning materials, traditional online resources, email updates, and online discussions, Livelihoods Connect strives to offer information pertinent and helpful to members of the DFID, those NGOs and consultants working with the DFID, and a host of other NGOs, including the World Bank, the Food and Agriculture Organization, and the International Fund for Agriculture Development. The featured section of the site, Information Resources, offers concise, helpful resources on sustainable livelihoods, including key documents, a Sustainable Livelihood toolbox of draft presentations and project documentation, guidance sheets from the DFID, and distance learning materials. The site also contains information on partnerships and research and an interactive message board.
