[NEW - updated on 02 August with new video on landslide risks and precautions]
With the onset of the monsoon, landslides, floods and lightning are becoming an increasingly severe risk within the camps. Based on messages endorsed by the CXB Emergency Communications Group (see below), these Rohingya language audio products are designed to help agencies accurately and effectively communicate about different aspects of preparedness. The audio can be played to communities in outreach settings (through community mobilisers, info hubs, loudspeakers, etc). You can preview and download the audio files (MP3) here:
- Product 1 - how to recognise the signs that a landslide might occur
- Product 2 - how to reduce the risk of landslides occurring in the first place
- Product 3 - what to do if a landslide happens
- [NEW] Video guide to landslide risks and precautions, presented by a CPP volunteer. Available in high-resolution (236MB: for projections) or low resolution (54MB: for mobile phones, etc) with English transcript
The audio products above are based on key, core messages collated by the Emergency Communications Group. These core messages are not intended to be distributed directly to affected people, but may be useful for field staff or for agencies creating their own communication materials on the topics of landslide, flood and lightning risks. You can download all the core messages here:
Audio materials 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. Translation support for both the core messages and audio products was provided by Translators without Borders. 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.
