PEC’s emphasis until now has been on the Communications portfolio, providing support to research programs and the Research Capacity Strengthening Division to enhance the dissemination of project materials. We will continue this successful strategy in the next plan period, investing time and resources in expanding the number and type of innovative communication/knowledge management products we disseminate. We will do so within a more structured framework, with standard operating procedures and protocols, following a house style that will lead to
professionalization of the products that emerge from the Center.
PEC also intends to broaden its profile within the organization, being more active and engaged contributor to ongoing discussions about branding, visibility and resource mobilization. This includes not only strategic
fundraising and development work, but also crisis communications and risk management.
