“The main reason I find these sites useful is that they contain information about which types of interventions work, and which don’t work (and the evidence to show this is the case). I find this information more useful than just having tools and resources for running programs. I also refer to relevant international organization websites (WHO, UNICEF, UNAIDS, etc) frequently.
I recently started writing my own development blog with practical tips / tools for people working in the field (www.tools4dev.org) so I also find a lot of information when I am researching those blog posts.
Most of the websites in the previous list are relevant for all development topics. In addition to these websites I have also completed many free online courses that cover different development topics. I did write a blog post recently describing my favorite ones. You can read it here: http://www.tools4dev.org/resources/free-online-courses-for-international-development-professionals/
The following websites have also been started recently to share both positive and negative results from field projects, which I find interesting:·Practical Initiatives Network (PIN) ·Admitting Failure “
