Farm Radio International in Spore

Spore, a magazine published by CTA (Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation) ran a feature-length article entitled “Rural media: New frontiers, new era” in their October-November issue.

The article discusses how radio, video, and print media are currently being used to present issues of importance (like climate change) to farmers, and how these media can provide farmers with useful information. Many interesting examples of rural media are presented, such as radio being used to inform and motivate communities in the Pacific, as they recover from a tsunami which affected their island.

The article also mentions of at least two of Farm Radio International’s broadcasting partners, Radio Fanaka in Mali and Radio BisonaBiso in Congo-Brazzaville.
