It's been my great pleasure in working with the members of UCP-SARnet to improve the look, feel and function of our online portal. Some of the new features you'll notice are:
- A new Front Page;
- The Members Area;
- Horizontal Navigation; and
- the Executive Team Working Space
The Front Page is designed to reach those that are not yet a member of the UCP-SARnet community. It was design to give people that don't know a lot about UCP-SARnet access to the information they need. On this page we are striving to give people confidence in UCP-SARnet by showing how are work is relevant, how UCP-SARnet is credible and that we offer great value to those in international development efforts.
The Members's Area, as Marek has put it, is the kitchen of UCP-SARnet. The Members Area page to bookmark! On it we've routed in all of the activity happening on UCP-SARnet so that we can all stay in the loop. It feature a members blog, most recent comments made on the site, most recent content added to the site and most recent members that have joined UCP-SARnet.
Although the public can pear into the Members Area only members can create new content and comment on the site.
Take a minute to peruse the new organization of the UCP-SARnet content by clicking on the new horizontal navigation bar. There is still some effort needed on these pages and the content development is never over so if you have any suggestion please contact me or Marek.
Executive Team Working Space
For those on the Executive Team, we are in the process of streamlining the administration process for submitting work reports and the like. You will find the new area here or by clicking Working Space at the bottom right in the site footer (look down the page).
More to come...
There is a lot more to come on the UCP-SARnet site including
- The UCP-SARnet Wiki
- Improved Community Spaces for our Regional Coordinators

At the bottom right of every page, there is a Feedback button and when you click it, it will bring up a window where you can write a short message to the ICT Team about something you noticed wasn't working or needs improvement on the site.
