This guide provides practical steps for philanthropic funders that are ready to align with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)—the global agenda for people and planet adopted by all countries at the United Nations in 2015. In this guide, you'll learn how to plan, assess, report, and take action on the SDGs, and you'll read illuminating examples of other funders facing and resolving challenges similar to yours.

In 2015, the countries of the world came together at the United Nations and signed on to a historic agreement called "Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development," which included a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs chart a way forward to a just, secure, and sustainable future for people and the planet. This guide introduces the SDGs and explores how philanthropic funders can align with them to increase their impact on the issues they care about.
People affected by emergencies can face increased risks to health from inadequate water, sanitation and hygiene and disease outbreaks. Involving communities affected by the crisis in the response, so that the delivery of facilities and services works for them, is a vital part of Oxfam's WASH response in emergencies.
Listening to different groups and individuals is key to community engagement. Understanding how people view risk and how they cope in a crisis can help to ensure that as far as possible, the WASH response strengthens their existing capacities, enables meaningful participation and focuses on marginalized and less powerful members of a community.
This guide shows how community engagement in WASH should be a planned and dynamic process, bringing together the capacities and perspectives of communities and responders.
Effecting social change in a rapidly changing political environment and an increasingly interconnected world requires foundations to adopt a learning orientation. Without continuous learning, grantmakers—and thus boards and trustees—are unaware about what is working where, with whom, and why, as well as what changes or refinements are needed in order to achieve the grantmakers' desired results.
This toolkit provides a fresh set of resources for grantmaker CEOs, evaluation staff, and senior leaders to use to engage their boards and trustees in conversations about the importance of strategic learning in their decision-making and deliberation processes.

This Question Bank offers users the ability to draw from a variety of questions that can help to inform and start a dialogue with grant applicants or recipients on their learning culture and goals. Some of these questions can be used in a grant application template or in a more informal conversation with a potential grant recipient. They may also be useful internally for discussing or reviewing a grant application.
FSG's new CSR Strategy Roadmap distills two decades of experience advising companies on CSR strategies into one step-by-step document. Designed for CSR and corporate foundation executives, the Roadmap offers practical tools and case examples designed to help companies transform their CSR strategies.
CSR and corporate foundation executives are facing a shifting landscape of internal and external priorities. To meet these priorities, CSR teams are transforming their portfolios from broad generosity to catalyzing focused, business-aligned, and outcomes-oriented efforts. This transformation requires structured strategy approaches as well as incorporating a heightened understanding of the root causes of inequities and injustices in our communities. The Roadmap aims to guide executives through the process of developing a strategy to proactively address these shifting priorities.

This document outlines a basic family engagement framework for how families could be involved at all levels of the Systems of Care (SOC) structure that can be helpful when a grantee is envisioning, conceptualizing and implementing family engagement within its SOC. While every SOC community will have a tailored approach to family engagement, this document offers strategies, ideas, and tools for family advocates to support Indian Families within any SOC framework.
Dangerous Speech Project;
No one has ever been born hating or fearing other people. That has to be taught – and those harmful lessons seem to be similar, though they're given in highly disparate cultures, languages, and places. Leaders have used particular kinds of rhetoric to turn groups of people violently against one another throughout human history, by demonizing and denigrating others. Vocabulary varies but the same themes recur: members of other groups are depicted as threats so serious that violence against them comes to seem acceptable or even necessary. Such language (or images or any other form of communication) is what we have termed "Dangerous Speech."
Naming and studying Dangerous Speech can be useful for violence prevention, in several ways. First, a rise in the abundance or severity of Dangerous Speech can serve as an early warning indicator for violence between groups. Second, violence might be prevented or at least diminished by limiting Dangerous Speech or its harmful effects on people. We do not believe this can or should be achieved through censorship. Instead, it's possible to educate people so they become less susceptible to (less likely to believe) Dangerous Speech. The ideas described here have been used around the world, both to monitor and to counter Dangerous Speech.
This guide, a revised version of an earlier text (Benesch, 2013) defines Dangerous Speech, explains how to determine which messages are indeed dangerous, and illustrates why the concept is useful for preventing violence. We also discuss how digital and social media allow Dangerous Speech to spread and threaten peace, and describe some promising methods for reducing Dangerous Speech – or its harmful effects on people.
This handbook provides guidance on developing, implementing, evaluating and sustaining fisheries learning exchanges. Produced through collaboration between FAO, the NGO Blue Ventures and the research initiative FLExCELL, it draws on experiences from dozens of learning exchanges over the past decade to provide actionable, accessible advice and best practices. While anyone seeking to better understand fisheries learning exchanges will find the information presented here of use, the guide is aimed primarily at practitioners such as development and government workers acting as technical partners to fishing communities in tropical developing countries.
