Information and publications

Bees for Development produces a wide-range of publications to inform and educate beekeepers in developing countries. We target our information to areas where mainstream forms of support are lacking, and where beekeepers and trainers are working in difficult environments.

Through our Information Services:

  • Beekeepers can gain new knowledge – enabling them to improve their standard of living
  • Trainers can deliver more effective teaching and training
  • Decision makers and policy makers – can be well informed to take decisions towards creating more enabling environments for bees and beekeepers
  • The theory and practice of sustainable beekeeping are further enhanced within the global beekeeping community.



Our Beekeeping Resource Centre offers a unique range of bee-related information, introductory texts on many beekeeping topics, and will guide you to a wealth of relevant papers, articles and books.


Through the Centre you can apply for a sponsored subscription to Bees for Development Journal and apply for a Resource Box.
