Climate change affects the poorest of the poor

Where climate change is concerned, little thought is given to what it holds for the poorest developing nations. It is the developed West which is expressing a lot of anguish on the melting ice caps and retreating glaciers. But the truth is, it is the poor developing nations of Asia, Africa and South Africa that are the most vulnerable and are already paying a heavy price.

Large parts of Bangladesh and Indian West Bengal face the prospect of being wiped off the map. The same goes with…

I saw your comment on Marie Rarieya's page:

"Mobile telephones , however convenient, are quite expensive. To my mind, community radios are cheaper and easily accessible. Community radio stations, operated by the local populace in India, are rendering yeoman service in the most accessible terrain. I feel they should be utilised to impart information on climate change to rural folk."

Do you have any advice about radio stations, sites, articles, etc. related to community media in India?

I am currently researching the motivations and strategies of organizations that use new and old media to build capacity for addressing environmental issues, especially in India and the U.S. So far in India I have looked into the Deccan Development Society (and their program for training illiterate rural women in video production) and the JATAN Trust (they have a very creative method of assembling interviews and local knowledge in videos, screening these videos publicly, and then turning the microphones and cameras live on the audience to stimulate deliberation and articulation on complex and critical environmental issues).

Good to meet you on this network and I look forward to hearing from you!
