The Data > Categories > Themes
Themes are how we thematically categorise our documents and organisations. They represent the most topical and relevant thematic areas in development.
Themes are browsable and have a simple hierarchy which enables a user to explore a thematic area in an easy and understandable way.
Eldis uses Themes to organise its document data. You can see these represented on the Eldis website as Resource Guides.
