Communication for development : an evaluation framework in action

Jessica Noske-Turner (Editor)
"From girl's education awareness and action, to attitudes towards viollence against children, communication for development (C4D) is a critical tool for sharing knowledge and creating social change. Evaluating how effective such communication has been in creating social change presents challenges. How can this information be gathered in a participatory way? How can we understand the contribution of C4D programmes to change? How can we ensure we learn from and adapt communication in the process? Communication for Development reflects on the challenges and opportunities of bringing a social change framework into practice. Underpinned by an Appreciative Inquiry approach, the book explores the research monitoring and evaluation of C4D through the lens of the field's leading evaluation framework. In each chapter, academic scholars partner with practitioners to draw lessons from recent collaborative action projects, which brought together researchers, UNICEF C4D and M&E teams, and selected in-country academic, NGO and government partners. As one of the largest United Nations agencies with a focus on C4D, UNICEF is seen as a leader of applied C4D research and practice. Communication for Development is essential reading for international development practitioners, students and scholars as well as programme managers, governments and donor agencies"--Back cover
