Humanitarian Broadcasting in Emergencies

This report by BBC Media Action looks at the effectiveness of mass media interventions in enabling people to survive and recover in emergencies.

By using evaluation data from BBC Media Action initiatives during the Nepal earthquake, the Ebola epidemic, the Syrian refugee crisis and the 2014 conflict in Gaza, and on literature and learning from the wider development and humanitarian sectors with the aim to encourage a continuation of the broader conversation on understanding the impact of communication interventions in emergencies. The report shares the findings of the individual evaluations, as well as the synthesised findings across all four cases – looking in particular at what mass media is effective and less effective at accomplishing in crisis.
