If you were expecting to land on the infoasaid project webpage you have been redirected here to the CDAC Network website. You have been redirected to the new CDAC Network website – the one stop shop for resources related to communicating with disaster affected communities.
The infoasaid project, led by CDAC Network Members BBC Media Action and Internews, ended in December 2013 and the website remained live until July 2014. The two main goals of the project were:
- To strengthen the capacity and preparedness of aid agencies to respond to the information and communication needs of crisis-affected populations.
- To partner with a number of aid agencies to help inform and support their communications response in a variety of emergency contexts.
Now that the CDAC Network has launched its new website, the resources developed through the infoasaid project have been migrated to the new pages. The infoasaid project website is no longer live. The new CDAC Network website was developed in partnership with Thomson Reuters Foundation with funding provided by DFID.
We haven’t removed any of the infoasaid tools, they can now be found on the CDAC Network website. We hope you enjoy exploring the new site.
- The infoasaid #MessageLibrary has been re-designed and is a key feature of the new CDAC Network website. It can be found under ‘Tools and Resources. The Message Library is an online searchable database of messages that acts as a reference for those wanting to disseminate critical information to affected populations in an emergency. It is an extremely important asset: having it available in multiple languages will make it even more so. Thanks to Translators without Borders, a CDAC Network Member, the platform will now be available in other languages, the first set of which will go live over the summer. Look out for Arabic, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Hindi and Bahasa Indonesian among others!
- The Media Landscape Guides can be found in the Tools and Resources library. You can easily filter by the resources by the type (Media Landscape Guide) to find the guides. These are held in PDF format. Many other resources developed over the course of the infoasaid project can also be found under this section (including the project’s evaluation report, learning reviews and case studies).
- The infoasaid e-learning module is also included on the website under ‘Learning Centre’. For those that have previously used this resource, the format of the module remains unchanged. New e-learning developed by the CDAC Network (Members and the Secretariat)will be uploaded when finalised – keep an eye out for new content!
Take time to explore the site and new resources. We will be populating it with exciting new tools, tips and techniques over the coming months. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch via the Contact Us form.
