Community Engagement in Humanitarian Action Toolkit (CHAT)
The 2023 updated Community Engagement in Humanitarian Action Toolkit or CHAT was developed by UNICEF jointly with the Collective Service, the CDAC Network, US-CDC along with the regional and country-level partners.
CHAT is a compendium of guidance and practical tools that addresses Community Engagement for Social and Behavior Change programming needs for natural hazards, conflict and fragile situations, disease outbreaks and epidemics, and complex humanitarian emergencies. This version of CHAT is an updated resource of the May 2015 version. It is aligned with the latest global frameworks, policies and standards including Core Commitments for Children in Humanitarian Action (CCCs) and it also builds on existing community engagement resources, guidance, and tools.
