Overview

Radio networks for exchanging information and programming have been around almost as long as broadcast radio itself. The combination of the Internet and broadcast radio now offers a new and potent range of possibilities for development communication. Broadcasters who used to have to travel for hours to find a public library to research a programme, now have instant access to the Internet; and national, regional and global radio news and alternative perspectives are available to even the most remote communities. The radio/telecommunications combination is helping keep communities together despite the distances imposed by migration. The cases presented in this book are among the first examples demonstrating the value of converging radio and new ITCs for Development. The book argues that radio will have even greater significance and value in years to come. For this reason we believe that radio is the one to watch.
