How do I navigate around the toolkit?

There are two main aspects of navigation around the toolkit that you will need to use:

  1. Using the menus.
  2. Using the tools.

1. Using the menus

Below the title on the front page of the toolkit you will find three main menus, which correspond to the three domains.
