BBC Media Action Resources

p034sf6p (1)BBC Media Action, the BBC’s international development charity whose goal is to use the power of media and communication to reduce poverty and help people to understand their rights, publishes good reports on its research and activities.  Check out the Publications and Resources section of its site for articles such as Humanitarian Broadcasting in Emergencies or How Radio and Distance Learning Built Skills and Knowledge for Cocoa Farmers in Sierra Leone.

If you are interested in media development issues in a particular part of the world you can search this section of the site by region or country; also by type of publication–research, policy, brochures, media action films, and stories of change (personal testimonies of how a certain tool or communication strategy made a difference).

BBC Media Action also has a blog that is quite active with several posts per week.
