One of Sierra Leone’s female journalists, Zainab Jocque, will be representing Sierra Leone at a two-day workshop in Burkina Faso.
The Panos Institute West Africa invited her to participate at a workshop on radio and Information Communication Technology (ICT).
The workshop aims at meeting a set of concerns often expressed within the radio sector as well as within the development sector at large.
The objective is to encourage a radio production of quality on some themes having priority and to set up an exchange mechanism at, at least, the regional level. This mechanism will be based both on informal networks of production and on various digital means of production exchange.
The workshop will be taking into account specific interests and concerns of the various types of participants, at national and regional level, for setting up such a mechanism.
The recommendations which will come out will lead to concretely setting up these networks of production and exchange.
