Project Name: “Development of communication materials” for rural water supply and sanitation programme
Name of Client: DANIDA
Period: July 1999 to January 2000 (07 Months)
Description of Project: Communication materials on water supply and sanitation (WSS) and hygiene practices play an important role in conveying messages to the end users. Although the importance of communication materials is well understood, yet the presence of effective materials was not quite common in the sector. Conveying appropriate messages to the target groups remained a challenge. In this regard, ITN-BUET had undertaken this research project to come up with a set of recommendations towards development of effective communication materials to address the need of the sector in this area, based on a learning process with the participation of community people. Peoples’ perception about the existing materials was examined wherefrom the factors influencing the effectiveness of materials were identified. Finally, a set of recommendations were made towards development of effective communication materials.
