R4D: Radio for Development

Radio is the most effective ICT in the developing world.  People don’t realize the importance of radio communication in the developing world. First world countries’ residents are accustomed to the Internet and often forget that billions of people living in remote rural communities around the world don’t have access to it. While browsing the Internet and reading about the critical role of radio communication in developing nations, I found a blog called ‘Radio for Development.’ The blog (http://goo.gl/d1eynT) is maintained by Sam Coley – Senior Lecturer and Radio Degree Leader at Birmingham City University, UK. It contains a series of blog posts that describe radio-related development projects, mostly in Africa. What I like the most about the blog is that the content is very short and to the point. Most blogs entries also contain a short video that complements the entry. I strongly recommend everyone to read all of the blog’s posts. My favorite entry is about the South Africa bush radio project .
