When disaster strikes, humanitarian aid organizations often play a pivotal role in relief efforts. Communicating with affected populations is one of the many challenges these groups face during a response operation.

A recent report titled 'Communicating During Disasters: Examining the Relationship between Humanitarian Organizations and Local Media' examines the relationship between humanitarian aid organisations and local media from the perspective of the aid providers in order to identify ways in which these relationships can be improved to better serve the needs of communities affected by disasters.
