CGI Action Network – Capacity Building Series

Given the increase of extreme climate events and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic disrupting both public health and economic outlooks for the Caribbean, there is no greater time to focus on supporting and strengthening community-led institutions — many of which are on the front lines of these global challenges. As a powerful marketplace of ideas and resources, members of the CGI Action Network community are uniquely fit to help support one another by sharing best practices, resources, and ideas. Through the Capacity Building Series CGI will provide webinars to promote and drive the development of skill-building topics on a rolling basis.


Effective Communication Strategies During a Crisis and Emergency

This webinar, “Effective Communication Strategies During a Crisis and Emergency,” shares various best practices for effective communication, ways to adapt communications for long-term success, and considerations for how to manage your organization's content and social media during an emergency or natural disaster. Partners from the CGI AN share their best practices and experiences about how to tailor your communications for your intended audience during challenging times.
