Dear Reader,                                                                                             4 January 2017

Welcome to Issue 181 of the newsletter!

We hope that you had a good start to 2017. To help you get back into the swing of things, this newsletter provides a recap of content published on in the last few weeks.

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is essential in sport and development. NGOs have formed mutually beneficial partnerships with corporations and sports associations, and the United Nations has emphasised the role of the private sector in working towards the Sustainable Development Goals. In this newsletter, we launch the first in a series on CSR, looking at how it has grown since the 1980s.

Elsewhere in this issue, we share an infographic showing the effect of national health on Olympic medal success, the news that the UEFA Foundation for Children has selected 12 new projects for support and a new Theory of Change on sport and crime prevention. This is in addition to a commentary discussing the role of action sports in development and this week's article in French, which discusses why we have reached a historic turning point for women's football.
