Another example of what these materials don't cover

These elected leader training materials do not include information about the legal and administrative rules and regulations specific to your country. Nor do they include technical information about the many challenges that face local governments. For example, there are no explanations of the various approaches to human settlements development, how to construct a sanitary landfill, the pros and cons of different approaches to primary health care, or strategies for local economic development. While these issues are important, they are not covered in these training materials.

This does not deny the discussion of such issues in the training we are recommending. In fact, we encourage you to "wrap" the training being done around substantive issues that your elected training participants are grappling with at the time. We will have more to say about how to do this later in the guide. For now, we just want to be clear about what is not included in this guide and the accompanying training handbooks.
