UNESCO’s “Empowering Local Radio with ICTs” project, supported by Sweden, strengthens the capacities of local radio stations in Africa, particularly in the use of ICTs, to modernize the stations’ operations, improve the quality of programs and extend the geographical coverage of news sources. Training additionally focuses on the empowerment of local women through gender-sensitive programming, issues of local concern and investigative journalism, as well as on the long-run financial viability of local stations. A photo gallery of this project will be publically displayed on the fence lines of UNESCO Headquarters in Paris for the month of May.
