The Manual highlights the main requirements of the Protocol, outlines key issues for applying the Manual in practice and provides materials for training & capacity development programmes that support the Protocol’s application. The Manual is divided in two parts: (A) for users applying the protocol and (B) for trainers that engage in capacity development activities.

Tool Outcome
