The CDAC Network is  organising its first ‘101’ Seminar outside of the UK on Lifeline Communications for Emergencies. The seminar will be led by BBC Media Action’s Jacqueline Dalton (Senior Humanitarian Producer) and Robert Powell (Senior Adviser for Resilience and Humanitarian Response) and is being hosted in Geneva by the ICRC.

The Lifeline Communications for Emergencies seminar will cover how to share information effectively with crisis-affected people, including a particular emphasis on working with the media to achieve this. Among other challenges, attendees will be invited to develop a communications strategy and produce a short radio bulletin for an imaginary crisis-affected audience. The seminar will be of particular benefit to emergency operations managers who are keen to find ways of delivering  the most appropriate aid faster, more effectively and more securely to those who need it most.
