Communication for Development (ComDev)
In a highly mediatised world, ComDev is increasingly important and relevant across many fields of development. ComDev focuses on communication processes based on dialogue, participation, inclusivity, sharing of knowledge and active engagement of the intended groups in the development activity. Communicative processes are inherently social, cognitive and cultural, and understanding this is critical. For instance, ComDev can maximize the impact of development initiatives that involve the implementation of information systems. Subfields of ComDev include CfSC which stresses the intended social changes and C4D, which often utilises new and old media, social media and mobile technology to create positive change through communication campaigns.
