This CD-Rom includes many documents from other organizations and from intergovernmental organizations. Whilst these are freely available on the web we have downloaded some of them to this CD-Rom so that they can be accessed by community activists who may not have access to the internet. We would like to extend our thanks to all the organizations concerned.

This list is not exhaustive. Inclusion on the CD-ROM does not imply that GFC is in agreement with a document’s contents.
The documents included in this edition are in English. However, links to websites with the same documents in other languages (where they exist).are also given within the text of the CD-ROM.
