International Development Online Navigator

International Development Online Navigator (IDON) is your electronic guide to an expanding universe of international development cooperation.

Conceived and supported by the Center of Security and Development Studies, IDON is a structured catalog of hyperlinks to various online resources (official websites of various actors engaged in international development, online knowledge banks and platforms, academic journals, databases etc.), which will help you navigate your own route.

The guide has an easy-to-grasp structure (represented below) and is meant to develop as a long-term crowdsourcing project. IDON users are kindly asked to recommend other resources or even new sections/subsections for inclusion in the catalog (by contacting the CSDS team at and make their own valuable contribution to the progress of development studies.
