FAO Rural Radio

Description: 
The FAO Extension, Education and Communication Service has from the very outset considered rural radio as the privileged medium available to rural communities, to have access to useful information and knowledge, to dialogue and to share experience, knowledge and techniques. Rural radio is a vital communication tool, particularly in Africa. Created and established more than three decades ago, this form of radio has become increasingly familiar, loved and used by the local populations. It promotes the exchange of views, brings people closer together, stimulates information, and enhances the value of local know-how. Thanks to rural radio, people can familiarise themselves with their environment and with the local socio-economic and health care programmes. Rural radio also offers information and understanding of the world around. Thus, rural populations can participate in the development programmes and activities.
