1 Comment

Madagascar is living a very delicate period but unfortunately the press is not covering the events almost at all. Italian newspapers do not even write about it, spanish neither and while the french Le Monde has few lines. BBC is reporting with few articles but a continuous reporting can be done via twitter. Here some of the main twits that are updating on what’s going on in this wonderful island:


You can also follow the events on Global Voices on Madagascar even if these days there are not so many postings on malagasy blogs or on the FOKO platform setup by Ushahidi to monitor the situation on the island.foko1

Passionate about social media, development projects and the world. Currently, I’m supporting the Emergency Division of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations in managing its online communication through the website, the social media and the mobile apps.

  1. Unfortunately the crisis in Madagascar is not finished yet and the events are still very dramatic even if they seem to be going towards an end. Wikinomics commented the use of Ushahidi engine to monitor the situation.
