Although communication today is going increasingly digital, with great potential for direct community engagement, radio remains a hugely important means of communication in many parts of the world. From 21 to 23 November 2018, eight communication officers working in French-speaking Africa for the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) met in Dakar, Senegal, to talk about how they have used radio as a tool for humanitarian communication. This guide serves as a written record of the best practices discussed at the Dakar workshop and provides simple, helpful, easy-to-use guidelines. The guide is divided into two sections: part one contains ten golden rules and some tips for producing a good radio broadcast; part two outlines the different types of broadcast and how to evaluate a programme's impact.
