Please join us for a webinar discussion with Translators without Borders and several protection practitioners to unpack the various layers of vulnerability of affected individuals linked to language barriers, implications of language barriers for affected populations and humanitarians, and practical steps humanitarian actors can take to improve two-way communication regarding the risk environment, consistent with results-based approaches to protection.


Acknowledging the reality of multi-lingual humanitarian environments and building on Translators without Border’s recent research in Northeast Nigeria and Bangladesh, several expert speakers will reflect on their experiences and explore how humanitarian actors can improve two-way communication with affected populations.
