Information sharing means that communities and people affected by the crisis are informed of their rights and entitlements and have access to accurate and timely information.
Key Actions Include:
- Diverse groups understand the role of the organization and its work, including what services are available to them
- Staff share information through a range of communication methods (formats, language and media) that are appropriate to the needs of the community, especially the most vulnerable and marginalized groups.
- Community members receive information, so they understand what they can expect in terms of behavior of staff and partners
- When collecting communications material (photos and/or stories) staff prioritize safety and dignity of community members, ensuring their full understanding, participation and permission.
