Radio programming for sustained behaviour change and accountability in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh
In an emergency, when information providing technologies such as television and internet are not readily available or difficult to reach, radio plays a critical role in safeguarding the right to life, which is a prerequisite for all other rights. It also helps secure the right to access information and the rights to freedom of expression and participation. Radio has played different roles in different phases of UNICEF’s Rohingya response since 2017. In line with the cross-cutting, multi-sectoral approach, and in the spirit of C4D humanitarian responses, many themes were integrated into radio programmes to create the demand for services and promote changes in behaviours and practices at the household level.
