The Communication Initiative Network: Where C4D ers connect

I smile as I remember when I inquired about varied portals for Development Communication from a colleague. With a few options, I went researching and settled on the Communication Initiative (CI) network as one of the places that had all the relevant resources, opportunities to network and persons who were serious about the role they played in effecting change globally via Communication.

I was impressed too that the network offered opportunities to view global content as well as content filtered by region including Latin America and Africa.  The CI also serves as a useful hub for identifying job opportunities, training sessions, conferences, meetings, Requests for Proposals and even avenues for collaboration. There is also an extensive segment with support materials, research publications and academic content related to change theories and Planning Models.

The blogs section also keeps a running log of content related to challenges and opportunities as well as outcomes from C4D /Behaviour change interventions.

In a phrase, the Communication Initiative lists its mission as:

To convene the communication and media development, social and behavioural change community for more effective local, national, and international development action
