The purpose of this Toolbox is to serve as a first stop for facilitators who are interested in helping a community to develop a community protocol. It is designed to provide facilitators with a broad overview of the elements they should consider before engaging in a protocol process. It also contains practical guidance on methods for developing community protocols. Overall, the Toolbox is for NGOs, civil society groups, community based organizations, and others interested in supporting local communities who are facing challenges from the extraction of natural resources, although its application is not limited to those situations.

Inside you will find background information on: (1) the Toolbox, (2) community protocols; and (3) the project that inspired this Toolbox. In addition, the Toolbox consists of five Booklets and a Leaflet. Booklet 1 sets forth the elements of community protocols and questions that facilitators should ask in order to understand what developing a protocol will involve in a particular context. Booklets 2 to 5 expand on the elements raised for consideration and provide practical guidance on how to engage in a protocol process. The Leaflet (6) lists online resources providing further information on issues relevant to extractive industries.
