Emma Judge is a published author having compiled a number of books for the international development sector, including To Whom It May Concern – a book celebrating 10 years of democracy in South Africa with the foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu − and two books in the Hands On series published with funding from the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) for development professionals. Her photographs have been published in The Guardian and Newsweek, while her writing and editing skills won her the World Bank Global Village Award at the One World Media Awards in 1999.

The Most Reverend Desmond M Tutu, Archbishop Emeritus: To Whom It May Concern provides us with important lessons from the past that we should use for the development of our nation. Through individual accounts, we learn that people contributed in seemingly small but important ways according to what they could do or could afford. It was as a result of such efforts globally that we were able to see the downfall of the apartheid regime. It is such efforts that we now need to fight and win the war against poverty and the injustices of our world today.”

Hands On – Energy, Infrastructure and Recycling
ITDG Publishing 2002,
ISBN 1-85339-488-2

This book promotes appropriate innovations and environmentally sound solutions in energy and power, buildings, transport and re-use of materials which can help reduce consumption.

To Whom It May Concern
Foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu
South African Network 2004,
ISBN 0-9548951-0-X

This book consists of accounts from a range of people working or volunteering in Southern Africa during Apartheid. The diversity of contributions reflects the cost of the struggle against apartheid to those countries in the region that vehemently opposed the South African regime. Most of the stories are told here for the first time and are evidence of the solidarity and comradeship between people across a physical and cultural divide, united in their desire for a just society.
