Important resources for Humanitarians

1. Visit inepd.org to find out what you can do for the global enabling of
poverty development.

2. Visit unfg.org for a great tool for generating gobbledegook for your next
annual report. No joke. For example:

The involvement of different stakeholders in the study resulted in
cross-cutting organisational Education for All policies targeted at
improving enrolment and retention rates amongst marginalized groups.

In the context of decentralization, the Chief Technical Adviser will work to
unlock clusters, through sector-wide reciprocal cost-benefit analysis
frameworks for development assistance planning.
In the context of improving the legal and regulatory framework, the Member
States will develop holistic outcome-oriented feasibility studies of
recommendations for change to be implemented.

Amazing to think that in context, this might mean something to someone.

I was impressed with the level of gobbledegook, it looks so much like it means something!

this is... amazing. and reminds me of the book i'm (finally) reading (just about to finish), "The Wisdom of Whores" by Elizabeth Pisani. It's really a fun read if you haven't read it yet.

YES I just read it before coming out here!! It was fabulous. I know, reading about how they went about creating some of those reports and guidelines... yikes. But her descriptions of interacting with all those amazing people makes me wish I were doing something else with my life.
