Communication for Development Archives
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 implementation.

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.
