AMARC 2009 documents available online

Presentations from the April 2009 Pan-African conference organized by the Association Mondiale des Radiodiffuseurs Communautaires (AMARC or World Community Radio Association) in Abidjan, Ivory Coast are now available online. Audio files, pdf and Word documents can be downloaded.

The conference’s theme was: Increasing the Effectiveness of Community Radio in Poverty Reduction, Good Governance, and Climate Change Adaptation.

Participants explored the development of community radio in Africa and strategized on actions to move forward.  Radio practitioners, including representatives from Katanga in the Democratic Republic of Congo, FADECO in Tanzania, and Nanto FM in Benin, shared insights and experiences. The presentations also included discussions on the social impact of radio stations in Ghana, and the significance of radio in Ethiopia, Uganda, and Sierra Leone.
