Knowledge hub

The LIFT knowledge hub has been designed to be intuitive and easy to use. It has both search and filter options, so that you can easily find resources of interest to you.

Focus areas

The different resources are colour-coded, indicating whether the focus area is ‘research’ (green), ‘results’ (dark green) or ‘tools and guidelines’ (beige).

Tools and guidelines

Each focus area is linked to specific types of resource. Research includes assessments, research summaries and research studies. Results includes case studies, impact summaries and impact studies. Tools and guidelines includes policy briefs, infosheets, user guides, technical assistance summaries and strategies.


Type text into the ‘search’ box to search within documents for specific words or phrases.


Alternatively, you can search for resources by selecting one or multiple filters, allowing you to search by ‘focus area’, ‘programme theme’, ‘type of resource’ and the ‘year produced’.

You can also use both the search and filter options together to refine your search further.

Popular documents

A clickable list of the most popular documents on the knowledge hub is included underneath the filters.

Viewing resources

For each resource featured on the homepage of the knowledge hub, there is an option to ‘read more’, ‘open resource’ or ‘download resource’. Selecting ‘read more’ will open a page that explains more about the content of the chosen resource. Opening a resource will open the file in a new window of your browser. Downloading the resource will download the resource to your computer, allowing you to read it offline.
