The OECD Development Communication Network (DevCom) is an international platform where governments find better ways to engage with citizens for sustainable development. Established 30 years ago, DevCom brings together communications and public affairs experts from the public, private and non-profit sectors to learn from one another and identify good practices.
Effective communications and public engagement have never been more important. In a complex political environment, development communicators need to rebuild public trust in international cooperation. In a rapidly evolving media landscape, they need to mobilise citizens into action for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
At DevCom’s regular events, participants share experiences and discuss latest trends in public attitudes to development, foreign aid and international co-operation. They meet innovators in communications and find partners for joint campaigns.
