Learning for Sustainability site

The portal (formerly NRM-changelinks), created and maintained by Will Allen, has been designed for those wanting to improve collaborative work in environmental protection and public health. The site highlights a wide range of networks, forums, processes and social skills needed to support constructive collaboration.

A central section links the reader to a range of guides, tools and checklists to address issues involved in managing multi-stakeholder participation and engagement initiatives. Lessons are drawn from different sectors including agriculture, the environment, HIV/AIDS, public health, climate change, disaster management, and conservation. A new page in this section now covers tools, tips and techniques for facilitators and other social engagement specialists. Other sections provide links to best and emerging practice in specific areas including social learning, adaptive management, network building and mapping, dialogue, knowledge management, and evaluation and reflection. Research links cover action research, systems thinking, participation, integration and interdisciplinarity.
