An independent review commissioned by CDAC Network confirms that the establishment of collective approaches  to communication and community engagement – at  national and global levels – is required to be more  systematic and effective and has significant support  across the humanitarian sector.   At national level the shape and functions of collective platforms, services and tools will vary according to context, needs and capacities. The global collective service and national mechanism should never be considered a stand-alone sector or cluster, but instead be an essential cross-sector working approach integrated within the humanitarian architecture in a given context. The global service would support national mechanisms in gathering and disseminating good practice, developing tools and providing guidance.
