The Division of Policy and Practice has embarked on a 60-year review
of UNICEF programme communications, currently referred to as
Communication for Development (C4D), to
establish lessons learned and best practices for future
As part of this
process, a compendium of key archival UNICEF documents on C4D from around
the world have been scanned into UNICEF's archival database, and
posted here for public availability based on
UNICEF rules of access.
The UNICEF materials include key UNICEF documents, Executive
Programme Directives, UNICEF NEWS on Communication issues, Project
Support Communication Newsletters and Evaluation reports. Primary
source documentation to date includes over 300 scanned items ranging
from small reports to full-sized books, particularly from the Programme Support
Communications reports, workshops and field notes
spanning 1972 to 1985.
Each item also has a synopsis and key thesaurus terms have been
applied. Many of the documents encompass a wide range of terms
resulting in significant overlap, hence the documents are grouped
instead chronologically by type.
