thanks, what languages is the guide available in please, any plans to translate into other languages?

Hi, to what extend do you counter rumours through established mass media?
CKA
01:02:43
does the manual also have a chapter on how to address rumors/ fake news on local news outlets?
amal alaghbari
01:02:49
Great presentation. put my question is why you put Rumours name for this ?! and also are you have any guideline or SOP for this
Mark South IFRC Europe/Central Asia

The full team for rumour tracking looks pretty big, can you do it with less people?

Thanks
Tehmina
01:04:21
Great presentation, thank you. Most of the examples mentioned are linked directly or indirectly to humanitarian assistance. I wondered how rumours leading to conflict within and between communities are taken up/addressed?
lhunot
01:04:45
Do you send the rumour tracking document to other organisations working on the crisis / sharing at coordination meetings etc?
rsimister
01:05:20
Do you have examples about how a rumour tracking initiative using this kind of methodology has linked in with existing rumour tracking conducted by local actors e.g. community radio journalists? THere seems lots of room to complement and just join up existing capture for analysis and feedback; that worked to some extent during the W Africa ebola epidemic

The recording and the presentation will be shared after the meeting.

rsimister
01:07:16
Are there any thoughts about applying/conducting some kind of rumour tracking to humanitarian actors themselves?! Could be an intriguing gap
amal alaghbari
01:08:34
Thanks :)

I am curious how the rumour tracking works if cluster system is in place? Is it coordinated somehow? OCHA perhaps? Our each cluster would track rumours related to the relevant cluster work?
amal alaghbari
01:09:24
How long do you work on this ?
rsimister
01:17:14
Thank you for the response
Katerina Koukoutsi
01:17:26
Thanks for this presentation. Collecting rumours is one part of our job the other I think is found ways to give the write information. Do you have any example of how we can work on that? How we are "answering" the rumours?
