Country and Regional Assistance Plans are public documents. Printed copies are actively distributed to stakeholders, both in the UK and in-country, and they are available to all on DFID’s website at www.dfid.gov.uk
Plans are translated into local language for specific in-country distribution when appropriate. Recent examples of such plans include:
Country/region Language(s) Southern Africa French and Portuguese Rwanda French and Kinya-rwandan Central Asia and South Caucasus Russian Iraq Arabic China Mandarin
French and Portuguese
French and Kinya-rwandan

Summary and ‘Plain English’ versions have also been produced. These include a summary version of the Regional Plan for Latin America and a version of the Assistance Plan for Palestinians, which was awarded a Crystal Mark for Plain English. DFID Nepal produced a standard plan for key decision-makers along with one in cartoon strip format for audiences not comfortable with the written word. Whilst in Nigeria, DFID used a weblog as part of its consultation process and promoted the final Country Assistance Plan through the media in-country.
