Please complete this brief 'mapping' of communication for development (C4D) in your country - we are doing this across the Network to gather members' thoughts and observations about the state of communications for development as a growing area in international development and human rights around the world.

We would value your thoughts about how C4D principles, and approaches of behavour and social change, social mobilisation, advocacy and media development are being used where you are.

We want this mapping to reflect your in-country insights; rather than your opinion about other countries where you may have been working - but of course sometimes this is useful.

Whether you are in the North or the South there are C4D things happening - we just have to investigate a bit harder in some cases.

Please make it clear in your responses whether you are giving reflection on C4D domestically within your country; or whether you are giving a reflection from the 'outside' as it were.

All these insights go into country meet-ups which are meant to be fun and interesting venues for discussion about these questions. All this will also feed into a new 'Yearbook' for next year that will have summaries of what people have said about C4D in each country, and this will also feed into a global synthesis report.

So please share your thoughts, there is no wrong and right and all thought are welcome.

Thank you.
