DevCom invites all development communication practitioners to contribute with short Think Pieces illustrating successful approaches and strategies in communicating results of development. The purpose is a concise piece of writing to add to the wider dialogue on issues facing development communicators.
These Think Pieces will be compiled into an exclusive DevCom publication “Good Practice in Communicating Development Results”. We hope a particularly rich and diverse body of knowledge on results communication will emerge from the submissions.
In the run-up to the IDB/DevCom Seminar on “Communicating Development Results” (23-24 April in Washington DC), seven think pieces were submitted as background documents for debates. Inputs were received from: BTC Belgium, NORAD Norway, SIDA Sweden, OECD-DCD, UNAIDS, UNICEF, World Bank. As a next step, the DevCom Secretariat is calling for additional contributions to the DevCom collection of good practice in communicating development results. The Secretariat will expand the Think Pieces with knowledge shared during the Washington seminar, include additional think-pieces and refine the good practice for publication by the end of 2012. The deadline for submissions has been extended until 1 November.
You will find more detailed information notably about the content and the submission in the document “Call for Think Pieces”. Also please do not hesitate to contact the DevCom Secretariat: [email protected].
