The overall aim of this toolkit is to create a framework that can be used for self-improvement and then peer-review at a later stage by building capacities of the stakeholders to assist peer CR stations. Realising that creating a structural framework for quality and standard for communities that are diverse in terms of their needs, affordances and goals, as a non-viable option, we at the CEMCA embarked upon exploring ways to "improve" CR practices through self-assessment and peer-review. In the spirit of continuous improvement, this Toolkit is a work in progress, and we are further refining this through interaction and actual testing of the ideas presented here.

The Ethical Practice Guidelines (EPG) and Self-Assessment Toolkit (SAT) will provide the readers with a bouquet of issues and aspects of ethical exercises to pave the way for developing a quality assurance framework as the CR sector evolves into a more robust and mature sector. The EPG has been developed as a part of a longterm consultative process of developing a common and collective understanding of problems, while offering possible solutions for issues of ethics and ethical practices.

International Organization for Migration (IOM)

This report documents the findings, analysis, and recommendations regarding key aspects of humanitarian communications gleaned from an assessment conducted in the aftermath of the 2010 and 2011 monsoon floods in Pakistan. Its aim is to assess the access - and response - of flood-affected communities to information after the floods and to analyse the gaps in these communications during the rollout of the Citizen Damage Compensation Program (CDCP), launched by the Government of Pakistan.

The report recommends that humanitarian communications be strengthened by, among other things, drawing on mediums that are accessible and frequently used by the affectees (which involves reaching out to female audiences to increase reception).

Further, in the backdrop of the theory and practice of participatory communication, it examines the need for community radio as an enabler of a socially inclusive process in CDD projects launched by the World Bank.
