Earlier this year, at the CDAC Network we distilled decades’ worth of best practice in communication, community engagement and accountability into one digestible guide. The How to Guide to Collective Communication and Community Engagement, published in English and launched at the Humanitarian Networks and Partnership Week in Geneva, has already become one of the most important and widely-read documents in CDAC’s history.

We are thrilled, with the assistance of Translators without Borders, to make this How to Guide now available in French, Portuguese and Spanish.

The guide describes the framework, minimum actions and services for communication and community engagement, and the vision for a collective approach. It provides practical guidance on implementing the minimum actions and services, setting up national, multi-stakeholder platforms and providing leadership, championing and advocacy for change in this area. It is based on action research into a number of initiatives and organisations as well as gap analyses and recommendations for strengthening and scaling practice. 

The How to Guide will be available in Arabic later this year. In the meantime, should you have any questions or requests, or would like to fund a translation of this document, please contact
