The realisation of the objectives of Finland's development policy requires support from citizens and their confidence in the effectiveness and potential impact of any actions taken. The MFA's Development Communications Unit is responsible for raising public awareness about global development issues and the objectives, themes and results of Finland's development policy. Effective development communications require that medium and message meet citizen and stakeholder needs, that texts be written in clear language, and that each message be tailored to its target group. Information is made available not only through traditional official channels but also via social media and at public events. Specific programmes are being prepared to help the media learn about development issues and development cooperation. The Development Communications Unit (VKO-40) produces topical material for the ministry's websites. will not be updated after 30 April 2014. The expenses incurred by online publications include the planning and setting up of the online service of Kehitys-Utveckling magazine, involvement in the maintenance and development of new ministry websites, and costs arising from the publication of information produced by ICT systems.
