comment:
"In the context of humanitarian action, Communication with Communities (CwC) refers to activities where the exchange of information is used to save lives and mitigate risks of the disaster affected community. It also enables greater accountability in humanitarian organizations and facilitates the designing of a response according to the needs of the community ... The overall objective of this toolkit is to guide policy actors and practitioners of national and international humanitarian agencies, donor communities, private sector entities, government ministries and departments to adapt CwC for the development of an appropriate disaster affected community-centered communication strategy throughout the project cycle and integrate it into policies, priorities and practices."

"This guide illustrates a step-by-step process of how to develop your own Humanitarian Radio station. Every crisis is different and the needs of the people affected are unique; therefore the information included here is meant as a guide, flexible enough to adapt to the individual needs of your community. This manual does not insist that you follow a set of rules to start and operate your station. However it does offer important guidelines about the options you should consider, why they are important and how you can learn from the experiences of other communities. It includes practical tips, resources, and examples, as well as sample surveys, forms, job descriptions, and other tools for easy adaptation." (p.7)

Lifeline production manual: a guide on how to make programming for people affected by humanitarian emergencies
author(s):
year:
2016

London
publisher:
pages:
26 p.
other ed.:
also published in Arabic and Burmese
comment:
"The purpose of Lifeline programming is to make content for people affected by humanitarian crises in order to help save lives and reduce suffering ... Lifeline programming requires a different approach from conventional newsgathering and reporting. It involves sharing practical, actionable information that audiences can use to improve their situation, and also providing encouragement and reassurance. It′s about reporting for those affected rather than about them. Topics may include issues around safety, food, water, shelter, health, hygiene, trauma and more." (p.4)

Lifeline: working with broadcasters in humanitarian crises. Tips for aid workers on working with media to save lives
author(s):
year:
2016
place:
London
publisher:
pages:
23 p.
comment:
"The guide is not about how to use media for public relations or fund-raising purposes; it focuses on working with media to share useful and actionable information with communities affected by crisis. Humanitarians call this kind of communication different things: ″community engagement″, ″communication with communities″, ″beneficiary communication″ or ″humanitarian communication″. They all mean the same thing: harnessing the power of communication to save lives. The focus is on local and national media because, if you want to reach local communities you need to go through local channels, which can provide specific, localised information and are in close proximity to their audiences."

Polio communication global guide: a how-to manual for the art and science of maximising immunisation rates through communication
year:
2016
publisher:
pages:
33 p.
comment:
"The Polio Communication Global Guide is a how-to manual for planning and building effective mass media and interpersonal communication strategies with the ultimate goal of eradicating polio. This document outlines UNICEF′s global approach to polio communication informed by data and on-the-ground experience with a focus on reaching the hardest-to-reach populations in the final polio reservoirs of the world. It provides a comprehensive strategic framework and identifies the key steps of planning and executing an effective and adaptive polio communication response from mass media all the way down to interpersonal communication ... Previous polio communication strategies often utilised risk communication and targeted individual caregivers with facts about polio and polio vaccination. The new polio strategy is specifically designed to address the dynamic perceptions and social norms that deter caregivers in the remaining 1% of the world from vaccinating their children. Our shift to social norm communication is grounded in recent polling research on populations affected by polio in endemic and outbreak contexts, and their responses to polio eradication efforts. Primarily, this research shows the prevalence of unsupportive social norms in high-risk areas." (introduction)

Risk communication applied to food safety: handbook
year:
2016
place:
Rome
publisher:
place:
Geneva
publisher:
pages:
87 p.
series:
ISBN:
978-92-5-109313-9 (FAO)
comment:
"This handbook focuses on practical principles and best practices of risk communication to support risk management of adverse food safety (including quality) events associated with biological, chemical or physical hazards. Food defence and nutritional aspects are outside the scope. Another focus of this handbook is on the use of risk communication in the process of risk analysis to manage both food safety emergencies (e.g. outbreaks of food-borne illness) and non-emergency or more enduring food safety issues (e.g. food safety and health promotion campaigns). Although the main focus of the handbook is on food safety, many aspects are applicable to effective risk communication in support of feed safety, animal health and zoonotic disease management. Publicly available knowledge on risk communication, existing guides and training materials and ongoing initiatives were carefully reviewed to inform the scope and format of this handbook. The aim was to develop a handbook that is useful for a wide range of countries and regions, with the main focus on the needs of low- and middle-income countries." (p.3)
