A Free Toolkit for Practitioners: Interactive Radio for Development Projects

This Interactive Radio Toolkit is adapted from and expands on Interactive Radio for Agricultural Development Projects: A Toolkit for Practitioners in December 2012 under USAID’s FACET project. Though many examples used here highlight agriculture, this adaptation is for development projects more broadly and draws on the wisdom and experience of colleagues in many fields who believe in the power of radio, particularly in the developing world, to engage, teach, advocate, and inform.

The original version was developed by the U.S. Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Fostering Agriculture Competitiveness Employing Information Communication Technologies (FACET) project, implemented by FHI 360 from 2009 to 2013 under award number EPP-A-00-09-00007, an associate award under the FIELD-Support LWA (EEM-A-00-06-00001-00).The concept for the original version was proposed and supported by Judy Payne, e-Business Advisor and ICT Advisor for Agriculture at USAID.

This toolkit is designed to help development practitioners use interactive radio to create compelling radio programming. The toolkit does not assume that radio is always the most appropriate solution for disseminating information. Rather, given the presence of radio in much of the world, this toolkit aims to help practitioners develop a systematic approach to using interactive radio as one effective way of sharing information with their target audience.

The toolkit is divided into the following six components:
