Through working with stakeholders in cities and towns around the globe, we gained experience in producing SFDs. With this expertise we generated draft versions of the guidance documents, which you are now able to use to produce an SFD for your location. These documents are working drafts, produced under the SFD Promotion Initiative and are currently being revised.
