Dear Tran Le Thuy - we are currently arranging press tours in Denmark to show Denmark as a climate show case. Denmark provides a unique showcase, thanks to its steady economic growth and stable energy consumption. Danish energy-friendly technology is one of the fastest growing exports and has tripled over the last decade.
And we are one of the worlds leading nations when it comes to renewables. Would you be interested in an invitation for a tour?
Hi Thuy, it's not easy to introduce M4P work in a few lines, but why don't you try visit our website at www.markets4poor.org. Some initiatives may be worth your notice like the bamboo initiative or topics discussed in the Markets and Development Bulletin. Hope you find them interesting!
Hello Kim Kierans, it's great to know you. Radio is a popular choice. In Viet Nam, the national TV has a good program on farming as well since TV is very popular in the countryside. But I think it's not enough. As the Internet is still alien to Vietnamese countryside people, I believe newspapers have an edge with radio and TV because of its archival availability. In Viet Nam, the literacy rate is quite high and a large number of rural people can afford low-cost newspapers. Do you know any newspaper success in reaching rural people ? and how they work ?
I agree that rural areas are not an easy market for newspapers because of financial and literacy issues. That is why community radio is often a cheap, accessible way to reach people with this information about farming practices, nutrition and health issues.
