Contexte et enjeux

À la suite de la réalisation d’un diagnostique des partenaires en 2015, quatre partenaires d’OXFAM-Québec dans le Territoire occupé de la Palestine et Israël (OPTI), YWCA, ASALA, TCC et YMCA, ont exprimé le besoin d’avoir un plan de communication. D’autre part, deux autres partenaires, DALIA et RWDS, souhaitent peaufiner leur stratégie de communication.

 

Rôle de RPSF

Le mandat consiste principalement à appuyer les partenaires d’Oxfam-Québec à Jérusalem en réalisant à la fois une stratégie et un plan de communication.  Parallèlement à ce premier mandat, il est aussi prévu d’assurer une certaine forme d’encadrement et de transfert de connaissances auprès du Conseiller Technique en communication qui travaille sur place, à Jérusalem, pour Oxfam-Québec.

2016 | SÉNÉGAL | APPUI EN COMMUNICATION INSTITUTIONNELLE

SÉNÉGAL

APPUI EN COMMUNICATION INSTITUTIONNELLE

Mai 2016

PARTENAIRES:
UPA Développement international
Union des groupements paysans de Méckhé (UGPM)

Contexte et enjeux

L’union des groupements paysans de Méchké (UGPM) est née en 1985 en réponse à l’évolution du contexte qui rendait de plus en plus rude la vie en milieu rural. La vision de l’UGPM est un développement social dans lequel la dimension économique n’est pas une fin en soi, mais un moyen parmi d’autres de contribuer à l’épanouissement des familles et des sociétés locales. Les principales activités dans le territoire sont l’agriculture, l’élevage, la foresterie et l’artisanat. L’UGPM comprend 89 groupements qui comptent aujourd’hui plus de 5 000 membres, dont 61% des femmes.

L’UGPM intervient dans cinq collectivités territoriales et entretient d’assez bonne relations avec les pouvoirs décentralisés et les services déconcentrés de l’État. Cependant, elle gagnerait à améliorer son image aussi bien à l’interne qu’à l’externe. Autrement dit, comment l’UGPM peut-elle communiquer efficacement en vue de sa promotion politique, sociale, économique en se basant sur les normes et valeurs culturelles de la zone d’intervention?

 

Rôle de RPSF

Le mandat de RPSF consiste à appuyer l’UGPM dans la réalisation d’un diagnostic de ses méthodes de communication institutionnelle en vue de promouvoir son image auprès de ses partenaires locaux, nationaux et internationaux, et de renforcer sa légitimité économique et sociale auprès de ses membres.

EBOLA CHRONO OR THE DISTRIBUTION OF THE INFORMATION

September 2015

Partners
Internews, Guinea
Ebola Chrono, Conakry

Context and issues

Internews produced in Guinea, EBOLA CHRONO, a daily radio program and an electronic newsletter about Ebola. The radio program is broadcasted by 34 regional stations. The news bulletin is sent to approximately 200 people by e-mail. Internews wishes to multiply the tools of information in a way that all the media, the regional radios, the electronic bulletin and the social media, conjugate their efforts and play a vital role in the impact and the distribution of messages affecting the questions of health. This project is financed by OFDA-USAID since December, 2014 and it will be in operation until April, 2016.

 

PRWB’s role

The objective of the present session is to form, remotely, two writers of the electronic bulletin Ebola Chrono as well as the journalists and other agents of Internews in Guinea regarding social media (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter). It is advisable to underline that given that Ebola is now under control in Guinea, Internews will put more and more the accent on the problems of health generally in its media.

Because of the narrow relation between the various media, it was suggested by PRWB holding a single session which would combine all the participants. The session was kept by Skype September 12th. It concerned the key elements of an effective information. Both trainers were Yvan Cliche for the social media and Colette Schwartz for the newsletter. A presentation was prepared and transmitted to the participants before the session.
