AMARC/FAO survey: take the chance to highlight your work!

AMARCsurveyWritten by the CCComDev team

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC) are launching a survey to map the work of its affiliates, community media networks and communication practitioners engaged in communication for rural development


Since 2008, FAO and AMARC have agreed to join efforts to promote communication for rural development (ComDev) and community media as an integral part of agricultural and rural development. Several field projects, regional initiatives, and community media have benefitted from this collaboration. In particular, AMARC launched, with the support of FAO, three ComDev regional platforms: Onda Rural in Latin America, Yenkasa Africa in Africa, and ComDev Asia in Asia.

The survey will help in identifying potential areas for improvement and collaboration to strengthen the engagement of community media in sustainable rural development, a key topic that will be discussed at the upcoming AMARC 11 conference in Accra, Ghana, from 10 to 14 August 2015.

Following up also to the Forum on Communication and Community Media For Family Farming (FCCM, Rome, October 2014), the results of the survey will constitute the basis to plan further cooperation between FAO and radio broadcasters, community media organizations, and communication for development professionals that are currently active in the rural development field. 

Take your chance to highlight the work you are doing, showcase your experience, and talk about the issues you face while promoting rural development!

We look forward to your contribution to the survey. You can find it in Englishhttps://goo.gl/4tJo5U, in French: https://goo.gl/3fWBLX and in Spanish: https://goo.gl/ocTHbY
