Today UNDP together with the Department of Information and Public Relations (GIS) trained government officials on communications and stakeholder engagement. The recovery process goes well beyond building back critical infrastructure, making communication and stakeholder engagement a critical aspect of the recovery process.
The trainings focused on: a) The importance of communication in project management and stakeholder engagement, b) Stakeholder identification and engagement, c) Existing tools and mechanisms for effective communication, including those available for Government communication, and d) RRL-specific requirements and tools/mechanisms.
Facilitators were Reshmi Theckethil, Early Recovery Expert and Jasmin Blessing, Communications Expert both from UNDP and Sheriece Smith, Public Information Officer from the Department of Information and Public Information (GIS).
