Abstract: For social protection spe¬cialists, effective stake¬holder communication takes on a heightened importance in the post disaster context. By definition, the socially marginalized are among the most vulnerable. Their voices which are difficult to hear in ideal circumstances can become even more muted in the aftermath of a disaster. Therefore it is essential to identify outreach mechanisms capable of accurately as¬sessing the needs of the socially marginalized people; involving them in decision making, and providing them with pre¬cise, timely, and relevant information that allows them to access services.
