This guide offers examples of economic strengthening best practices in a format that multi-sectoral teams of donors and practitioners can use to inform their own work. The document presents two sets of tools: 1. A series of seven principles for program design and implementation, which donors and partner agencies may refer to as they progress from early program concept through implementation, monitoring, and evaluation; and 2. A set of technical recommendations on how to implement selected economic strengthening activities. The document also provides an annotated list of technical references and concludes with a glossary of terms.
