World Ag Info Project Design Team
Solution Scenario Concept: Programming partnerships will be developed with existing community radio systems. Agricultural personnel from nearby agricultural institutions (e.g. higher education, governmental agencies, extension models, etc.), both faculty and students, will be recruited to participate in the development of content in a variety of formats and lengths from 30 seconds to 1 hour radio programs focused on community agricultural needs. The program content will be archived in English or other base languages in addition to being presented in the dominant local languages. This RadioAgInfo bank will be available to share across countries and regions. Programs will use a variety of formats including storytelling and “call-in” radio to allow local smallholder farmers to interact with the information using a variety of technologies and survey techniques and request specific program content.

WorldAgInfo Project Solution Scenario 5: Technologies and Information Exchange Systems : Radios and Cell Phones. Based on the deliberations of participant groups in Workshop 1, the WorldAgInfo Design Team drafted a problems and solutions summary document (available within Section Three of the Final Report). This is one of several potential solution scenarios to emerge through that process. These were in turn used to inform proposed information projects generated by Workshop 2 participants in Livingstone, Zambia (available within Section Two of the Final Report).
