Development in Practice

homepage.gif

This rebuild project was timed to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the journal. Although the printed version has had an online presence for nearly 10 years now, this new Drupal site is the boldest departure DIP has yet made from its printed form. The content is still available in its conventional volume/issue listing. But the careful keyword indexing on all journal abstracts, means that you can now sort abstracts into topic and regional lists.

Paulo Longo Research Initiative

PLRI is a project hosted by the IDS which aims to improve understanding of the issues affecting the lives of sex workers. The initiative is a collaboration of scholars, policy analysts and sex workers. It brings together research and advocacy material that challenges conventional approaches to researching sex work and that promotes legitimacy and labour rights for sex workers.
Working on an extremely tight budget we began by offering PLRI a simple basic Drupal installation for their content.

Publish What You Pay Norway

This project grew out of a request to create a Norwegian version of the new Publish What you Pay logo. The Norwegian wing of the global civil society transparency-in-mining coalition was prompted into action after the successful refit of the international website. Localising the logo just involved a bit of rearranging with the country name. The website was a bigger undertaking, as it has a focus on the capacity building work that is particular to pwyp.no.

FERN and Sinkswatch

FERN’s European Union advocacy work is focused on protecting forests and defending the rights of forest peoples. They approached us in 2008 with a familiar tale of a website that was not keeping pace with the growth and change in their activities. More of their content was being written in French as well as English and the volume and diversity of their publications was lost in a system that didn’t index it usefully.
We set up a new Drupal site for FERN with a French language sub-section, and a much more powerful publications search.

Scientists for Global Responsibility

After years of working with 100s of html coded pages on a static website, SGR managed to raise the funds to get their website rebuilt with Drupal. The budget was tight so we worked together to prioritise their requirements and make a plan that would meet their needs without overspilling. A bespoke page design was out but an automated (scripted) migration of all the old html pages into the Drupal database, and integration of their subscription form with a PayPal gateway was in. SGR took on the mammoth task of tidying up the imported data and categorising it with their new  index terms.

Privacy International

Privacy International Home Page

The last PI website rebuild was back in 2004 when we devised what felt like quite an innovative way of cross referencing content. But as is the way with our line of work, what seemed cool and groovy in 2004 had become pretty clunky and out-moded by 2010 (or probably even sooner for web fashionistas). And so the challenge 6 years on, was to refit the ship without losing any of its precious cargo and at the same time get that cargo out of the hold so that people could find it, read it and start taking action on it. And to do all that on very limited resources - of course.

Women Reclaiming and Redefining Culture

WRRC home page

This was a project to create an archive space which would allow 3 years of  research by WLUML and the IWE to endure beyond the lifetime of the project. The site took its design cue from WLUML, with distinct touches that give it both its own identity and a clear sense of relatedness with its mother site.

We used a nifty SWF (Flash) tool to cleverly embed the wealth of Images, PDF, video and audio material inline in the site's web pages, bringing all content to the surface of the site. And as you'd expect with Apache Solr technology, it's a breeze to find the documents you're looking for, and plenty more that you wish you'd known about before.

Diaspora Volunteering Alliance

DVA home page

The DVA is a new initiative of a group of UK organisations with a common interest in sending diaspora volunteers to support projects in their countries and continents of origin. DVA staff approached GreenNet with a brief to build a website that could quickly provide an online presence for the Alliance – a space for them to publicise the initiative’s aims, and stimulate interest from potential volunteers and diaspora organisations.

Logging Off

After we completed the FERN and SinksWatch websites in early 2010, Logging Off was next in the queue from this stable. The project was borne partly out of a need to improve the update-ability of the Logging Off site, but also fitted into  FERN's grander plans to standardise their online platforms using Drupal.

Publish What You Pay

PWYP regional page

Publish What You Pay's global coalition of transparency advocacy organisations has come a long way in the years since we rebuilt the site with Drupal in 2008. And there was a growing sense that the Where We Work section wasn't properly keeping pace with the range of members or their activities. So we took a fresh look at the mapping, the navigation and the page layout.
