I have been pretty busy organizing the “The Role of Radio in Development Practice“, a joint AMARC/FAO/AMISnet Workshop. We want to learn from each other about communication for development activities actually going on the Lakes region in Africa.
As we stated in the concept note of the meeting, together the three big organizations were planning a technical consultation workshop on the theme of Independent, Rural and Community Radios to be held at FAO headquarters in Rome from 16 to 18 April 2008.
The overall aim of the workshop is to identify key issues in the design and implementation of radio initiatives in development contexts and to explore potential areas of collaboration among the participating organizations.
Activities will be starting this afternoon, so I’ll be back with more information and blogging about activities, methodologies and results later on.
