[Updated 9 July 2020 with new audio content]
To coincide with the distribution of shelter tie-down kits, BBC Media Action has developed a series of multimedia products to assist in communicating the importance of shelter strengthening and more general extreme weather preparedness in advance of the monsoon. The materials also provide detailed practical guidance about key shelter strengthening techniques.
Materials are primarily designed for use in information hubs or within community spaces and listening groups, to spark discussion; but could also be used by agency field staff, volunteers and others working directly with communities. For those community members with mobile phones, the content could be shared directly with them for future reference, using Bluetooth, SD card or other transfer methods.
Materials specifically about shelter strengthening:
Materials about more general preparedness for storms, cyclones and monsoon weather:
See also the cyclone signals page for materials that help explain the cyclone early warnings that will be used in the camps.
Materials for listening groups
These materials have been endorsed by the shelter sector and are part of an ongoing series of multimedia outputs being produced by BBC Media Action to enhance the range and quality of tools available to information hubs, listener groups and other community-facing information services within the Rohingya emergency response. The work is being delivered in partnership with Action Against Hunger and IOM; and is funded by Global Affairs Canada and the UK Department for International Development.
