Title

Engaging Community Radio on Climate Change Adaptation, Research and Advocacy

Partner World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC)

Date of submission 04/04/2012

Description

Action Pledge

This project aims to strengthen community knowledge and give local communities a strong voice concerning the impact of climate change and how these communities can adapt to the ongoing changes. This will be accomplished by increasing their input into local research and policy dialogue and enabling them to share their experiences in coping with and adapting to climate change. In addition, the project will achieve this by capitalising on the reach and influence of existing community radio networks in selected countries in Africa, Asia-Pacific, and the Latin America/Caribbean region.
