For guidance on safeguarding in international development research, the UK Collaborative on Development Research  has produced a number of resources. Of particular interest is the UKCDR Guidance on Safeguarding in International Development Research, which provides a set of principles and best practice guidance on safeguarding to anticipate, mitigate and address potential and actual harms in the funding, design, delivery and dissemination of international development research. An additional piece on the practical application of this guidance during COVID-19 is also available.
