Communication for Rural Development

Communication for Development (ComDev) is a participatory approach that integrates community media, low-cost ICTs, mobile phones and other communication tools to facilitate access to information, knowledge sharing and social dialogue. Well- planned and managed ComDev activities are crucial to ensure stakeholder engagement, and should be considered in project design, in order to enhance impact and ownership of rural development initiatives. The Communication for Rural Development Guidelines for Planning and Project Formulation provide development planners with practical orientation on how to plan and monitor ComDev activities as part of the project cycle, so that overall effectiveness and sustainability may be improved.
