Improving communication with crisis-affected communities Infoasaid was a DFID-funded project, implemented by a consortium of two media development organisations - Internews and BBC Media Action, both CDAC Network members. The project, which was established in 2010 and came to a close in December 2012, worked on multiple levels to improve communications with crisis-affected communities. It had two main objectives: To strengthen the capacity and preparedness of the humanitarian system to respond to the information and communication needs of crisis-affected populations. To partner with aid agencies to help inform and support their communication response in emergencies.   In February 2013, an event was held to launch a Humanitarian Practice Network paper that examines the strategies infoasaid adopted to achieve these objectives, outlining what was done, how it was done, what the challenges were and what was learnt from the perspective of the project and its partners.
