This booklet aims to illustrate Communication for Development in practice across UNDP through selected case studies drawn from country and regional offices as well as headquarters. Often ComDev elements are integrated within or underpin UNDP supported projects without a ComDev approach being specifically acknowledged as part of the project strategy.

These components strengthen projects primarily through enhanced participation of local people, accountability and transparency on the part of national and local government and improved delivery of public services. In the area of conflict prevention and recovery, strategic use of communication mechanisms is vital in bringing together fractured communities and former combatants to discuss differences and to seek solutions.

This handbook is the compilation of documents for an action research to remove barriers and increase social impact of community radio. For example, Benin became a pioneer regarding liberalisation of the airwaves due to its relatively clear and organised legislative framework. The liberalisation of airwaves had the following juridical bases: first came the Constitution, on December 11, 1990, which established the freedom of the press, and the regulatory body responsible for the protection of this freedom, the High Authority for Audio-visual and Communication (HAAC); then, in 1992, came the Law on the Regulative Body (Organic Law 92-021 of August 21, 1992) relative to the HAAC; afterwards came the installation of the members of the HAAC at their duties; and finally, on August 20, 1997, came Law 97-010 on the liberalisation of the audio-visual area.

The FAO-Dimitra is a participatory information and communication project which contributes to improving the visibility of rural populations, women in particular. Communicating Gender for Rural Development presents the project experience in using communication for development to enable the most marginalised groups, including women, to take ownership of their development and achieve economic and social empowerment. Capacities for harnessing the full power of this approach are fairly limited and there have been relatively few studies of the subject.

This toolkit is designed to help projects and organizations use low-cost video to augment the traditional agricultural development activities and extension services they provide. Given the increasing availability of low-cost digital video cameras and editing software - and the increasing use of video media in donor-funded agricultural development projects - this toolkit aims to enable practitioners to develop a more systematic approach to using low-cost video as one of the mediums through which they share information with farmers. It includes practical guidelines about storyboarding, technology choices, video production, editing and dissemination.
