Research output: Book/ReportReportScientific


CESSDA Service Providers are obligated to provide support to member countries where the national infrastructures are immature and/or fragile. This report proposes a model for sustainably providing support services to aid the development throughout the CESSDA Service Provider community and to aspiring members.
Development support is categorised into long-term services and discrete activities, and the scope and scale of the demand for support were analysed.
Towards the sustainability of development support services, we examined the financial models that may be deployed, possible external sources of funding, how to support knowledge about the services and activities that are available, and how needs should be assessed.
