BBC Media Action continue their work in Gaza with Lifeline Programming and a presentation of their latest findings from their communication and information needs assessment is shared here. The research undertaken in August 2014 is based on responses of 700 adults from a sample in damaged areas and shelters. It reveals that radio is the main source of information (82%) and then TV (64%). People are primarily interested in news of what is happening in Gaza with the security situation and registering for aid as their second and third concerns. Lack of access to electricity is the main barrier for respondents to get the information they need.
