Information Sharing

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.
