    This report describes the process, achievements and learnings of a subproject which set out to introduce a radio programme as a communication and extension tool to help Sri Lankan fisherfolk in their development. The subproject was initiated in January 1988, the radio programme went on the air with daily and weekly programmes in January I989 and has continued since without a break. In March 1992, the subproject was terminated and the responsibility for the programme was assumed by the Ministry o f Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (MFAR) of the Government of Sri Lanka. MFAR was responsible for the execution of the project. The Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation worked closely with MFAR and provided expertise, training inputs and the services of a senior broadcaster to act as the Team Leader. The Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP) provided technical assistance, support for training, broadcast, production, equipment and monitoring. The Norwegian Agency for International Development (NORAD) , through their office in Sri Lanka, provided a generous grant to cover some of the training and expertise inputs. World Radio for Environment and Natural Resources (WREN), a media organization in the UK, was contracted to provide the subproject the services of Michael Pickstock who provided the bulk of the training inputs, advice on management, programme design and equipment, and who undertook the evaluation of the activity.

    Report of the proceedings of the 6 to 9 December 2000 meeting of education experts from Bangladesh, China, Maldives, Nepal, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Viet Nam, which was held in Bangkok, Thailand to examine how distance learning resources can be used to correct gender imbalances in rural development. Access to knowledge and information is crucial for improving the social and economic status of not just women and girls but of entire rural communities in Asia. One of the most effective ways of ensuring such access is through a partnership between agricultural education and distance learning systems, which have generally not worked in tandem in countries in the region. While the former has targeted rural areas and farmers, the latter has been focussed on urban learners. The publication includes case studies on the subject from the above countries as well as papers presented by resource persons invited to the consultation.

    #ElCampoSigue Radio: Safeguarding rural livelihoods in the face of COVID-19 in Colombia
    Webinar – 18 March 2021: Summary points
    2021
    Also available in:

    In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, radio broadcasts, among other channels, have been extensively used as a Risk Communication and Community Engagement (RCCE) strategy. In Colombia, they have been instrumental in especially reaching rural communities. FAO in Colombia, through the #ElCampoSigue campaign, designed a communication and social mobilization strategy, aimed at providing information to actors along the food supply chain, in order to manage the impacts of COVID-19 — and the other shocks — on the agriculture sector and food and nutrition security. The campaign that translates to “Farming doesn’t stop”, offers a suite of communication tools for advocacy, public training and awareness to food supply chain actors. Almost a year after Colombia’s first lock down measure in March 2020, communication and innovation have proven to be vital strategies in the fight against the pandemic. Against this background, this immersive webinar sought to recreate the experience of the El Campo Sigue radio broadcasts. This radio show style webinar specifically aimed to: • Share experiences from #ElCampoSigue and the lessons learned at the community-level. • Emphasize how communication programs are a strategic mechanism that support rural communities in sustaining the processes of production, transportation and marketing of agricultural products despite the economic barriers generated by COVID-19. • Discuss the synergies and partnerships that facilitated the response to the emergency, as well as the recovery approaches.
