This is a list of my favorite sites providing regularly-updated development news that you can receive via email (daily, weekly, monthly, etc.) or via an RSS Feed. They are both "mega" sites that compile information from a variety of development/aid organizations, and ICT4D or gender-focused (a reflection of my own interest). I find a lot of information in these publications that help me in my work.

What are your favorite email newsletters or RSS feeds relating to aid work, particularly those that support your activities in the field?
