How can we reach communities across Vanuatu? Access to Information Report is online

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation International Development (ABC ID) has published their findings from the 2013 Citizen Access to Information in Vanuatu study, funded by the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID). The study was conducted by InterMedia with local data collection partner, Wan Smolbag. The Citizen Access to Information in Vanuatu study provides insights into how citizens communicate in Vanuatu, what information channels they use and why, what information is trusted and their perceptions of development aid. Importantly, this report provides key insights for addressing citizens’ needs in Vanuatu to achieve greater development impact and influence and to optimise citizen engagement strategies in Vanuatu.
