First Sensitisation Workshop on Rural Radio for Policy, Decision Makers
THE NEED FOR RURAL RADIO IN AFRICA
Recognizing that the current world food situation poses one of the worst crises facing humankind, FAO has, since the 1960s, recognized the crucial role radio can play in helping to redress this crisis, as well as bring about rural development and poverty reduction. The organization has been associated with attempts at finding ways of maximizing its use and impact. In this, FAO has been working together with CTA, AMARC and UNESCO. The basis of this work has been an understanding of the nature of rural radio itself and, its suitability for food security and sustainable development.
