Introduction

Development is both a collaborative and communicative effort. For the political discussion and awareness-raising required to bring about social and institutional reforms, communication tools are essential. Along with increasing involvement, providing access to information is a key function of development cooperation. If vulnerable groups of the population are better informed, they will be able to assert their rights more consistently and more effectively employ state services to lift themselves out of poverty. Development Communication is a type of communication that allows people to have a say in projects, engage in them, and acquire a sense of ownership over them.

Communication, particularly in the context of development, is fundamental to rights-based approaches to development, which include the rights to receive information and have a voice, as well as freedom of information and media activities. Furthermore, good communication enables civil society organizations to benefit from networking possibilities as well as opportunities to lobby or campaign on specific concerns. Different communication tactics can also have an impact on policy decisions. A strategic approach to communications promotes project success while also providing a set of questions to aid in project planning and execution.
