Communication at the heart of change

Communication at the heart of change explains the essential role that information and communication plays in development.

Sustainable development demands that people participate in the debates and decisions that affect their lives. They need to be able to receive information, but also to make their voices heard. But the poor are often excluded from these processes by geography and lack of resources or skills. The video explores what can happen when poor and marginalised people are listened to, and given access to the information they need.

You can find out more about the role of communication in sustainable development by reading our landmark publication, At the heart of change.
