Work package 09 covers aspects of Communication and Labour Market Investigation of the project.

The Communication activities are conducted with the vision “Bangladesh (water) sectors and stakeholders are highly aware of the importance of, needs for and consequences of Delta way of thinking/working.” A main challenge faced by DeltaCap project is how to make significant impact from a small-scale project with limited budget. Communication strategy aims at upscaling the impact of the project activities by strategically disseminating its activities and findings.

The communication strategy of DeltaCap covers two main aspects:

* Digital Strategy: Integrated all digital activities of WPs and create a one-stop-shop via the web site.

* Media Strategy: Influence the media to take up news on DeltaCap activities.

The labour market components has the vision to “Support BD professionals to envision the future needs for integrative/delta thinking/working.” Labour market surveys are standard part of many past NUFFIC-NICHE project. Most of these projects (focused on developing capacity of universities) performed labour market surveys in order to understand contemporary labour market needs and address those. In this regard DeltaCap project approach has to be different. The need here is to study the gaps in the labour market for delta planning and address these needs. Therefore rather than following existing demands and trends, DeltaCap labour market components has to envision the future needs and attempt to understand the gaps. It also need to have a more active influence in the market.
