This handbook, funded by CIDA’s Office for Democracy and Governance (ODG) is intended to be a user-friendly decision support tool to assist government desk officers, programme planners, NGOs and international governmental organizations in their operational and strategic decision making, country planning and project evaluation. It distils the findings of previous phases of the project, synthesizing relevant findings from CIFP’s research for the Department of National Defence (DND), the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFAIT), the RCMP-CISC, the EC and more recently CIDA’s Policy Branch. Over the course of this decade-long research endeavour, CIFP has developed a suite of tools for policy-relevant country analysis and risk assessment.
