“The launch, in February 2019, of the summation of the CDAC Network’s expertise and knowledge in the How to Guide on Collective Communication and Community Engagement; the dedication, that same month, of the Overseas Development Network’s Humanitarian Practice Network Magazine to collective communication and community engagement; the existence of 14 (and more in the pipeline) national platforms on communication and community engagement; and the fact that communication and community engagement is now a recognised pillar of humanitarian action demonstrates how much we can achieve, and with such rapidity, by working together.” Sir Brendan Gormley, Chair of the CDAC Network
2018 marked ten years since CDAC’s inception. And we decided to take stock: what had changed in the sector? How had communication and community engagement developed? What lessons had we learned?
2018 was also a year of innovation, of coordination collective communication and community engagement, and of connecting the humanitarian and development divide.
For a summary of everything we did last year, and a lot of what we have achieved in the past ten years, read the 2018 CDAC Annual Report Disaster communication fit for the future: driving innovation for strong local links.
