With the World Humanitarian Summit fast approaching, humanitarian effectiveness, as one of the key themes, is a hot topic on everyone’s lips.
CDAC Network Members have long believed that communicating with communities work, whether carried out by humanitarian agencies or by standalone communications initiatives, improves the effectiveness of humanitarian response.
The Network has some examples showing that if communities have accurate information on how to access support, and if community perspectives are listened to and acted upon by decision makers, humanitarian action can be more effective.
But we need more proof!
Although the Network has examples, the evidence to prove the link between ‘communicating with communities’ initiatives and effectiveness of humanitarian action has not been consolidated.
The CDAC Network is looking for your stories, anecdotes, case studies and evidence to help build the case, and examine the link between CwC and effectiveness.
