"MAKING IT WORK"

APPROPRIATE TECHNOLOGY IN AFRICA



RBO produced in October & November 1996 a series of 6 x 15-minute episodes about use of appropriate technology, broadcast in an English version on ZBC (Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation) Radio 4, and also aired in different language versions in Botswana, Kenya and Ethiopia.

The programs were used as a method of informing policy-makers by identifying and assessing the demand for sustainable technical solutions in various sectors of the developing economies in East and Southern Africa, at the same time, they were designed to sensitize the rural and urban poor to the existence, availability and applicability of appropriate technologies.

The series also constructed a forum for the cross-fertilisation of ideas from around the region through an introduction in each episode of a technology and its usage in individual countries of the region.



The programs were researched and recorded by RBO's travelling reporter George Msumba,
and produced in English, Shona and Kiswahili at RBO's Harare studios.


The radio-project was sponsored by

in co-operation with partners in these 4 countries:
