This handbook presents the process of utilising the SWOT and PEST analysis approaches.

The SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, opportunities, and Threats) and PEST( Political, Economic, Social and Technological) analysis has been a useful tool for development organisations for a long time.

This Handbook proposes the application of the SWOT and PEST tools for use as a decision-making process for development planning.

The process of utilising the SWOT and PEST approaches requires an internal survey of strengths and weaknesses of the program and an external survey of threats and opportunities.
