When disaster strikes people need food, shelter, water and safety. They also need information and they need to be able to communicate – with each other and with those trying to help them. Through information provision and dialogue it is possible to engage people actively in the response: enabling them to make informed decisions about keeping themselves and their families safe, where and how to access essential services, and participating in activities and decisions that affect their lives.
This introductory course targets humanitarian staff who engage with disaster affected communities regularly, though it can also be explored by others who are interested in improving their knowledge and skills in this area.
In this course, you will learn how to engage affected communities to help provide the information they need and establish communication mechanisms for dialogue with disaster responders.
