Using our Resource Centre

Who is this Resource Centre for?

Beekeeping is a viable addition to many livelihood programmes. The materials in our Resource Centre provide a wealth of information which can guide programme developers to design effective, sustainable beekeeping projects. Through using our Resource Centre we hope programme developers are able to promote contextually appropriate beekeeping methods and will avoid placing undue emphasis on beehive donations – as such projects often lead to unmet expectations.
Many of our users are members of beekeeping groups, cooperatives or businesses that train other beekeepers. We have a variety of tools and resources such as training manuals, posters and guides that can help support your beneficiaries.
Knowledge and skills are a beekeeper’s most crucial assets. We provide effective training pathways and reliable advice to beekeepers around the world who would otherwise have no access to educational resources to keep bees successfully. All beekeepers will be able to benefit from access to our instructional videos and our quarterly Bees for Development Journal.
Our Resource Centre contains an extremely comprehensive wealth of resources of interest to researchers and students. Please be aware that our Reference Collection sign-posts people to articles and resources which are not downloadable from this website, but can be accessed elsewhere.

Any resource with the tag ‘reference’ is only available to view in our physical library in Monmouth. If you would like to arrange an appointment please Contact us.

Any resource with the tag ‘citation’ is only available online from the resource publisher and we do not have the rights to host them on our Resource Centre. We feature them however, because they may be of academic use to our users. Most citations are available in the ‘notes’ section of the resource data and occasionally a hyperlink is included to take you to the host’s library.
