Today, over 30 experts from all over the World will convene at FAO Headquarters in Rome to discuss about the state of the art of Communication for Development.
For the few who does not have a clear idea about the topic, have a look at Mario Acunzo’s interview. I also remind the definition of ComDev has formulated during the World Congress on Communication for Development in 2006 at FAO:
Communication for Development (ComDev) is a social process based on dialogue using a broad range of tools and methods. ComDev is about seeking change at different levels including listening, establishing trust, sharing knowledge and skills, building policies, debating and learning for sustained and meaningful change. It is not public relations or corporate communication. (WCCD, The Rome Consensus). The ComDev process goes beyond information dissemination to facilitate active participation and stakeholder dialogue. It highlights the importance of raising awareness, the cultural dimensions of development, local knowledge, experiential learning, information sharing and the active participation of rural people and other stakeholders in decision making
Experts will gather to understand what happened in the most recent years and formulate guidelines on how to proceed further, find a better positioning and design a new offer.

My mother, on the right side, is using Google Images, to identify actors on historical movie pictures. This is necessary in her job to archive thousands of photos of the ASC – Archivio Storico del Cinema, my father’s historical archive of movie pictures.
She discovered the Web recently but now she is a great fan!
Dave talked for more than one hour and I was overwhelmed by an incredible flow of inputs, suggestions, questions and doubts. These kind of moments are fundamental for professionals like me who have to afford the complexity Dave is describing in his approach.
To be able to “probe, sense and respond” we must be always open and willing to look for and receive new inputs from outside.
