Three of the Media Development agencies (MDAs) of the CDAC Network - BBC Media Action, International Media Support (IMS) and Internews - have come together to develop a suite of common tools for conducting communication needs assessments following a disaster. These are based on questionnaires used by Internews in its information needs assessments.

These tools have been developed by the MDAs, but this does not exclude other organisations from using them. For example, some of the questions can be included in other sector assessments to ensure data is collected on communication needs. Moreover, the CDAC Network advocates for a comprehensive communication needs assessment to be conducted in the context of every new emergency, which would require the use of this kind of tool.

The suite of common tools includes:

  • A Guidance Note on Using the CDAC Network Common Communication Needs Assessment Tools
  • Questionnaire for Use with Affected Population
  • Humanitarian Responder Questionnaire
  • Media Station Profile Questionnaire
