Always alert: reducing disaster risk - Guide for communicators and radio broadcasters

This English manual, adapted from a Portuguese-language training toolkit, Sempre Alerta: Redução do Risco de Calamidades, focuses on broadcasting around disaster risk reduction. Although the focus is on disaster risk reduction, many of the principles can be applied to any kind of reporting, especially reporting related to humanitarian and development issues.

The guide consists of 3 sections: (i) disaster risk reduction: community radio broadcasting and monitoring; (ii) communicating early warning systems; and (iii) rising waters: broadcasting about floods.

The manual was designed to be used for self-study, to gain ideas and insight about reporting and communicating disaster risk reduction, and to develop training programmes with community radio stations on reporting for reducing disaster risk. Trainers, broadcasters, and programme managers are encouraged to adapt, expand, and use the material as needed.

Compiled and edited by CMFD productions, the guide was produced for The International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Mozambique as part of the United Nation's Delivering as One Joint Programme on Disaster Risk Reduction, in collaboration with the Instituto de Comunicação Social (ICS), National Institute of Disaster Management (INGC), and station partners.
