Dear Drum Beat Network Participant

Greetings from UNICEF and The Communication Initiative!

Information Needs and Practices of International Development Professionals Survey

UNICEF and The Communication Initiative are conducting a survey with organizations and individuals working in international development in order to gain a better picture of:

The information needs and practices of professionals like yourselves working in international development

The resources you most often turn to and use

The sources of information you find most useful including those produced by UNICEF

The tools you use most often to identify and access information

This information will be used to help strengthen UNICEFs global communication and advocacy efforts.

We also want the results to support your communication and advocacy initiatives and we will be pleased to share the results with any interested participants (you can opt to do this at the end of the survey).

All personal and identifying information will be kept strictly confidential.

This survey should take 10 to 15 minutes to complete. To access it simply follow this link

Please do share this note and the link to the survey with your networks - the more people who complete the better understanding we will develop of the information needs and practices of people and organizations involved in development action.

Thanks once again, we know how busy you all are and value the time you are giving us!

Best wishes from UNICEF's Division of Communication and The Communication Initiative
