This 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.
The guide is intended primarily for practitioners and leaders working in national and international humanitarian and media development organisations as well as other entities involved in preparedness, response and recovery. Experience in the humanitarian sector and prior knowledge of relevant policies, plans and processes is assumed, as is familiarity with the humanitarian architecture, the humanitarian programme cycle and accountability to affected populations. The content is illustrated by numerous case studies, in order to contextualise some of the practices outlined.
