Developed at the Institute of Development Studies at the University of Sussex, Eldis receives funding from a wide range of sources, including the World Bank and the Global Development Network. The core function of Eldis is to act as an Internet-based information service, maintaining a library of online documents and resource guides to such relevant development topics as climate change, health systems, globalization, and pastoralism. Due to this focus, Eldis will be of particular interest to development practitioners, various non-governmental organizations, and researchers. The resource guides are a good place to start out, as they contain brief overviews of each topical area, complemented by a few key documents. Equally enticing is the "News and Events" section, which contains announcements about funding opportunities and advice about seeking employment in the development sector.
