This booklet has been prepared for IPSI member organisations, as well as for others who are engaged in SEPLS, to introduce SDM and to provide snapshots of the projects implemented by our sub-grant recipients. The booklet starts with an introduction to SDM, followed by a list and a global map of the sub-grant projects. The third section provides an overview of the sub-grant projects newly selected in 2016. The fourth section summarises the highlights of the achievements from nine sub-grant projects that had been completed as of February 2017. Comments on SDM from the Director of the IPSI Secretariat are provided in the final section.
