“Academia is key to strengthening the field of communication for development (C4D) around the world, as universities play an important role in building skills in the field and in developing the human resources that will plan and implement C4D programmes, as well as influence policies”, states the global knowledge base known as The Communication Initiative Network.

SEDRD’s Capacity Development and Extension (CDE) program was recently featured in among the graduate programs and academic groups that play a role in supporting research and advocating for Communication for Development within their institutions and beyond.

CDE has offered coursework in Communication and Development for more than four decades, for a listing of relevant universities engaged in this area see link here
