Rural communities face a unique set of environmental, economic and social issues. This script package explores the concept of healthy communities from a rural perspective and offers strategies that can be used to highlight positive responses which build healthy communities.
This package features an issue pack and seven scripts on water integrity. We have also included four news stories on water integrity that have been distributed by Farm Radio Weekly. Corruption is a serious problem in the water sector. One study estimates that, if African water utilities functioned in an environment free of corruption, their costs would be reduced by almost two thirds.
This package features the 15 winning scripts from the radio scriptwriting competition on smallholder farmer innovation. The scripts tell fascinating stories about creative farmers across sub-Saharan Africa who have come up with ways to improve their livelihoods.
Climate change is often presented in the media as a horror story, a disaster waiting to happen. It’s true that most scientists agree that, even if the nations of the world manage to strongly cut emissions of greenhouse gases, the global climate is still going to change, in many ways for the worse. And small-scale African farmers are among those who will be most affected by these changes, both because they are dependent on the weather and because they are often poor.
