This site is for members of the DiDIY project to develop "Policy Patterns". These are not 'finished' recommendations but intended to be an ever-evolving toolkit of possible solutions.

We hope that once some policy patterns are written that others will help create, adapt, critique and refine these, so they evolve into a common resource.

Current Policy Patterns

To find the list of current policy patterns, click on the heading immediately above.

An explanation of the intended purpose of the headings can be found on the page describing the Policy Pattern Template.
