14. How do I start?

A good way to start the SFD process is by reading the SFD Manual (Version 2.0, July 2017).

This tells you what data you need to collect and how to collect it:  Volume 1 of the Manual is useful to guide you through the data collection process whilst Volume 2 will help you to familiarize yourself with the terminology used by the SFD PI such that a common understanding of terms and consistent language is used. We also recommend that you read through previous SFD Reports, especially if one has been produced for a city or town in your country, as this will highlight data sources which you can use and will give an idea of the layout and content of the report. All SFD reports are available via https://sfd.susana.org/sfd-worldwide. If you require help remember that you can always contact us via the help desk http://sfd.susana.org/toolbox/sfd-helpdesk or by email This email address is being protected from spambots.
