Communication for Development (C4D) is a methodology that seeks to enable participatory processes through which communities can develop solutions that promote positive changes in behavior and social development.
The Regional Migration Program implements a Communication for Development component in communities of the region. The program aims to empower local governments, organizations, and the population at large to develop campaigns that promote regular migration and prevent the risks of irregular migration.

IOM Public Communication Campaign Toolkit
The toolkit is designed to support IOM staff and other migration professionals responsible for public communication campaigns in complex settings who are, perhaps, new to this area of work. It provides a useful introduction to the many approaches to produce awareness-raising, behaviour change and information campaigns in migration contexts.
