26 October, 2022



This booklet describes the importance and modalities of effective communications preparation before and actions during a crisis communication.

Additionally, there are simple and clear checklists that institutions can follow.

“The word “crisis”, from the Greek “Krizis”, describes a judgment, decision, or crossroads after which events can unfold in two significantly different directions. An organization can either overcome a crisis, or it will be permanently damaged.”
