Commonwealth of Learning

Learning with Community Media: Stories from the Commonwealth and Latin America presents the experiences of a wide cross-section of education, development and community media groups in conceiving, designing, delivering and evaluating participatory communication programmes in more than a dozen developing countries of the Commonwealth and Latin America. The 24 chapters in this collection provide a well-rounded profile of educational participatory communication from the perspective of facilitators and trainers, stakeholder agencies and individuals, and the participants themselves — the latter ranging from farmers, social activists and indigenous groups to children and youth, expectant mothers, women combating domestic violence, and people at risk for HIV/AIDS.

This sourcebook makes the case about the importance of incorporating communication from the onset of development policies and practices, as a necessary ingredient to enhance sustainability and avoid the failures of the past. It intends to offer a broader conception of communication, including other purposes and functions than the usual ones.


South Asia has a long tradition of using communication to promote development goals. Communication approaches have been variously used for promoting immunisation, prevention of diarrhoeal dehydration and HIV/AIDS, female literacy, among others. These have been in the form of mass media campaigns, radio programmes, posters, street plays and localized outreach through communities and NGOs.

This working paper presents a synthesis of experiences in applying various communication approaches ranging from mass communication and entertainment education, interpersonal communication, participatory development communication, advocacy and social mobilisation that have been used in South Asia and elsewhere.

United Nations Development Programme

This report presents the highlights of five country assessments undertaken between 2009-2011 to identify the communication and information needs of indigenous peoples in Asia-Pacific. The assessments used a participatory and inclusive approach to analyze major development issues faced by indigenous peoples.

They considered media and communication landscapes - encompassing freedom of expression and information, the safety of journalists, and community media, particularly radio - and how different factors facilitate or hinder information and communication for indigenous peoples, including the potential of new modes of digital communication and information and communication technology (ICT). The assessments provide a basis for recommendations on priority interventions for each participating country and for a regional strategy.

How Internet Radio Can Change the World: An Activist's Handbook
Eric Lee

How Internet Radio Can Change the World: An Activist's Handbook is essential reading for trade unionists, environmental campaigners, human rights activists -- anyone who is working to change the world. Author Eric Lee has pioneered the use of the Internet by unions around the globe, and the website he established in 1998, LabourStart, now appears in 19 languages and is used by thousands of activists every day. In early 2004, the author launched the first online labor radio station and this book reveals exactly what was involved in setting it up. It also delves into the short history of Internet radio, revealing how what began as a radical project to reinvigorate the liberal wing of the Democratic Party was turned into a commercial success -- and yet remains a vital tool for activists. The book clearly explains both how to listen to Internet radio -- and how to set up your own station.
