About this site

As a leader in the field of relief and development assistance, CRS has produced a wide-ranging catalog of technical and project-focused publications. This site aims in part to make selections from that catalog more easily and widely available outside the agency. A second purpose is to create a new venue for sharing practical, practice-oriented information with others whose work or interests in international development intersect with our own. We plan to develop the site as a complement to more traditional publications, drawing on the array of new media and communications opportunities presented by the web.

This site is part of a family that includes the main Catholic Relief Services website (, the CRS Fair Trade Network site ( and others.
