Sport for Development and Peace (SDP) brings the power of sport to solving some of the most difficult challenges of humankind. Commonwealth leaders have consistently endorsed the role that SDP can play in development and peace work, in particular in the domain of youth engagement and empowerment.

Effective SDP programmes require careful planning, delivery and evaluation. This workbook is designed as a roadmap to help governments and sport organisations work together. It includes practical exercises to guide users through the many steps that comprise the lifecycle of an SDP programme.
