AMARC TO HOST INAUGURAL ASIA-PACIFIC CONFERENCE ON COMMUNITY RADIO
Organised by the Asia-Pacific office of the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC), the conference is expected to bring together more than 150 participants for four days of seminars, train-the-trainer workshops and AMARC Asia-Pacific's first general assembly.
It will enable participants to discuss campaign strategies, address issues of access to media, and strengthen networking and information exchange. The conference will also discuss various strategies to facilitate the participation of women in community radio.
AMARC says governments in the Asia-Pacific region need to realize that media pluralism and the recognition of community radio are key conditions for empowering local communities to develop poverty reduction strategies and health campaigns, and contribute to democracy building.
