The CDAC Network's Disaster and Emergencies Preparedness Programme (DEPP) aims to improve the effective delivery of humanitarian assistance through improved two-way communication with disaster-affected populations. The program, which has pilot projects in Bangladesh and South Sudan, aims to generate crucial evidence around what are the best approaches for strengthening community engagement in the humanitarian sector during times of crisis to ultimately influence a sector-wide shift in practice.

The two countries represent contrasting disaster contexts – Bangladesh is particularly prone to frequent natural disasters, and South Sudan is experiencing protracted manmade conflict. Internews is the host of the DEPP in South Sudan, where it has convened, in collaboration with UNOCHA, a local communicating with communities (CwC) Working Group.

As part of the program and with the goal of generating crucial evidence around what are the best approaches for strengthening community engagement in the humanitarian sector during times of crisis to ultimately influence a sector-wide shift in practice, the DEPP team has undertaken a baseline study to look at how humanitarian organizations are communicating with communities and to provide practical and targeted recommendations on how to better engage communities in South Sudan.
