Talking Peace Airs its 20th Episode

Our team in Cox’s Bazar reached a milestone by airing its 20th episode of the weekly radio and podcast show, Shantir Lai Kotha Koi (Talking Peace). The program brings together members of the Bangladeshi and Rohingya communities to discuss shared issues. Their 20th episode focused on food security during monsoons. In addition to airing on local radio, community listening groups are able to gather in the refugee camp to hear it as a downloaded podcast—ensuring that it reaches people who may not have access to the radio or missed its original airing.

New Survey Shows Improved Access to Information

Last October, the Internews team conducted an Information Needs Assessment in Cox’s Bazar that found only 23% of respondents felt they had enough information to make good decisions for themselves and their families. In July, in partnership with Internews and Translators without Borders, BBC Media Action conducted a new survey and found that 84% of respondents now feel they have enough information to make decisions. 75% of respondents also replied that it is easier to access information in the past six months. The full survey results and report from July are linked below.

Flying News Bulletin 2

Flying News bulletins track and dispel rumors in and around Cox’s Bazar. The July issue is available to read online in English, Bangla, and Burmese. Since Rohingya is a mostly oral language, the information is also shared through an audio program called Bala-Bura, which is shared with listening groups in the refugee community. The July issue discussed food safety and rations, human trafficking, and extortion. To read more click on the link below.
