Communiqu€ ¦ï¿½ de Presse

*Malgr€ ¦ï¿½ une connectivit€ ¦ï¿½ am€ ¦ï¿½lior€ ¦ï¿½e, les radios ouest-africaines peinent
toujours € ¦ï¿½ tirer profit des TIC*

Les radios demeurent le m€ ¦ï¿½dium de communication le plus appropri€ ¦ï¿½ € ¦ï¿½ la
communication sociale et € ¦ï¿½ la communication de d€ ¦ï¿½veloppement en Afrique.
Apr€ ¦ï¿½s deux premi€ ¦ï¿½res enqu€ ¦ï¿½tes en 2001 et 2003, l'IPAO vient de r€ ¦ï¿½aliser
une nouvelle € ¦ï¿½tude sur les radios et les technologies num€ ¦ï¿½riques de
communication. Dans cette € ¦ï¿½tude, il s'agissait de faire l'€ ¦ï¿½tat des lieux
de la connectivit€ ¦ï¿½ des radios ouest-africaines aux (N)TIC (internet,
satellite, ordinateur, outils de stockage num€ ¦ï¿½rique, etc.), d'analyser
les usages mis en oeuvre, d'identifier les contraintes, opportunit€ ¦ï¿½s, et
de faire des recommandations aux diff€ ¦ï¿½rents acteurs. L'€ ¦ï¿½tude est
principalement ax€ ¦ï¿½e sur sept pays cibles (Ghana, B€ ¦ï¿½nin, S€ ¦ï¿½n€ ¦ï¿½gal, Mali,
Sierra Leone, Burkina Faso, Niger) et concerne toutes les radios
(communautaires ou associatives, commerciales, confessionnelles et
religieuses). Deux cent vingt (220) radios ont € ¦ï¿½t€ ¦ï¿½ enqu€ ¦ï¿½t€ ¦ï¿½es. Les
principaux outils de recherche utilis€ ¦ï¿½s sont le questionnaire,
l'interview, la recherche documentaire.

Les r€ ¦ï¿½sultats r€ ¦ï¿½v€ ¦ï¿½lent que, de mani€ ¦ï¿½re globale, les radios des sept pays
ont un taux d'acc€ ¦ï¿½s moyen € ¦ï¿½ l'internet (51,8 %), avec une grande
disparit€ ¦ï¿½ selon les pays et les types de radios. En effet, d'une part,
alors que le taux de connectivit€ ¦ï¿½ est de 72,2% pour les radios priv€ ¦ï¿½es
commerciales, il se limite € ¦ï¿½ 31,5% pour les radios communautaires ou
associatives. D'autre part, au niveau des pays, les radios ghan€ ¦ï¿½ennes
pr€ ¦ï¿½sentent 93,5% de taux de connectivit€ ¦ï¿½, les radios s€ ¦ï¿½n€ ¦ï¿½galaises 89,7%,
alors que seulement 20% des radios de la Sierra Leone sont connect€ ¦ï¿½es.
Au Ghana et au S€ ¦ï¿½n€ ¦ï¿½gal, pratiquement toutes les radios commerciales sont
connect€ ¦ï¿½es. En outre, 72,7% des radios communautaires s€ ¦ï¿½n€ ¦ï¿½galaises
disposent de l'Internet, alors que seulement 8,3% des radios
communautaires nig€ ¦ï¿½riennes sont dans ce cas. Les taux de connectivit€ ¦ï¿½,
toutes radios confondues, au Burkina, Faso, au B€ ¦ï¿½nin et au Mali, sont
respectivement 61,5%, 55% et 34%.

C'est gr€ ¦ï¿½ce € ¦ï¿½ la technologie ADSL que la majorit€ ¦ï¿½ des stations de la
sous-r€ ¦ï¿½gion se connecte, en particulier au S€ ¦ï¿½n€ ¦ï¿½gal, o€ ¦ï¿½ plus de 92 % des
stations acc€ ¦ï¿½dent au r€ ¦ï¿½seau mondial gr€ ¦ï¿½ce € ¦ï¿½ cette solution. Comme
l'illustrent les co€ ¦ï¿½ts d'acc€ ¦ï¿½s pr€ ¦ï¿½sent€ ¦ï¿½s, dans certains pays,
l'utilisation de l'internet devient de plus en plus accessible, mais
ceci se limite aux r€ ¦ï¿½gions ayant de bonnes infrastructures. La forte
p€ ¦ï¿½n€ ¦ï¿½tration de la t€ ¦ï¿½l€ ¦ï¿½phonie mobile sur le continent permet aux stations
d'en faire un outil incontournable de reportage et d'€ ¦ï¿½changes avec les
auditeurs ; cet usage remporte aujourd'hui l'adh€ ¦ï¿½sion de tous les
auditeurs de radio.

M€ ¦ï¿½me s'il a € ¦ï¿½t€ ¦ï¿½ identifi€ ¦ï¿½ environ 70 sites web de radios, celles-ci sont
encore tr€ ¦ï¿½s faiblement et de mani€ ¦ï¿½re tr€ ¦ï¿½s pr€ ¦ï¿½caire pr€ ¦ï¿½sentes sur
l'internet. Dans la plupart des pays, la diffusion en live sur internet
est tr€ ¦ï¿½s instable (streaming r€ ¦ï¿½guli€ ¦ï¿½rement inaccessible) ou inexistante,
bien que souvent annonc€ ¦ï¿½e. En outre, un grand nombre de ces sites web
ont tr€ ¦ï¿½s peu - ou pas du tout - de contenus. Le S€ ¦ï¿½n€ ¦ï¿½gal et le Ghana sont
les pays o€ ¦ï¿½ les radios disposent davantage de sites web, mais la
diffusion en direct sur l'internet est beaucoup plus stable au niveau
des radios ghan€ ¦ï¿½ennes. La pr€ ¦ï¿½sence sur le web illustre encore que ces
deux pays sont ceux dont les radios tirent davantage profit des TIC.

Par ailleurs, les services € ¦ï¿½ valeur ajout€ ¦ï¿½e du mobile, en particulier le
SMS, utilis€ ¦ï¿½ par 83,8% des stations interrog€ ¦ï¿½es, connaissent un € ¦ï¿½norme
succ€ ¦ï¿½s aupr€ ¦ï¿½s des populations. Ces nouveaux services sont consid€ ¦ï¿½r€ ¦ï¿½s
comme d'importants outils d'interactivit€ ¦ï¿½ entre stations radio et
auditeurs, et constituent de plus une source potentielle de revenus
substantiels pour l'entreprise radiophonique.

Globalement, le satellite est peu utilis€ ¦ï¿½ par les radios. Il sert
principalement € ¦ï¿½ la r€ ¦ï¿½ception des programmes. Les radios communautaires
sont les plus nombreuses € ¦ï¿½ l'utiliser, € ¦ï¿½ 57,7%, alors que cette
statistique est de 28,8% pour les radios commerciales. Le fort taux
d'utilisation de ce moyen de communication par les radios communautaires
s'explique par les appuis internationaux dont elles b€ ¦ï¿½n€ ¦ï¿½ficient dans ce
cadre. En ce qui concerne la diffusion de programmes par le satellite,
quasiment seules les radios publiques, disposant de subventions
publiques cons€ ¦ï¿½quentes, peuvent se permettre de l'utiliser, notamment
vers l'Afrique, l'Europe et les USA.

Par manque d'information ou par m€ ¦ï¿½connaissance des TIC, il a € ¦ï¿½t€ ¦ï¿½
€ ¦ï¿½galement remarqu€ ¦ï¿½ une confusion dans certains esprits entre logiciels
libres et logiciels propri€ ¦ï¿½taires, voir m€ ¦ï¿½me au sujet du type de
connexion internet dont dispose la radio. Les besoins en formation
restent € ¦ï¿½normes et concernent tous les domaines des NTIC, en particulier
ceux de la production num€ ¦ï¿½rique, de l'utilisation basique des
ordinateurs, de l'Internet et celui de la cr€ ¦ï¿½ation ou la maintenance de
services avanc€ ¦ï¿½s de diffusion et de t€ ¦ï¿½l€ ¦ï¿½chargement en ligne. Les
coupures de courant sont particuli€ ¦ï¿½rement index€ ¦ï¿½es dans les pays ayant
les meilleures connectivit€ ¦ï¿½s comme un v€ ¦ï¿½ritable obstacle.

Plusieurs recommandations ont € ¦ï¿½t€ ¦ï¿½ faites € ¦ï¿½ l'attention de tous les
acteurs interpell€ ¦ï¿½s par le d€ ¦ï¿½veloppement du secteur m€ ¦ï¿½diatique, au
niveau national, r€ ¦ï¿½gional et international. A titre d'exemple, on peut
mentionner les recommandations suivantes :

- 1. Mettre en place, en impliquant toutes les parties prenantes, des
strat€ ¦ï¿½gies nationales et r€ ¦ï¿½gionales sp€ ¦ï¿½cifiques et d€ ¦ï¿½di€ ¦ï¿½es € ¦ï¿½ la prise en
compte des nouvelles technologies dans les radios et les m€ ¦ï¿½dias en
g€ ¦ï¿½n€ ¦ï¿½ral ;
- 2. D€ ¦ï¿½velopper la connectivit€ ¦ï¿½ dans les pays par l'augmentation de la
bande passante, la consolidation des infrastructures, l'extension de la
couverture des r€ ¦ï¿½seaux t€ ¦ï¿½l€ ¦ï¿½phoniques et la baisse des co€ ¦ï¿½ts d'acc€ ¦ï¿½s ;
- 3. Former le personnel des radios en gestion du streaming audio et
vid€ ¦ï¿½o pour favoriser la pr€ ¦ï¿½sence des radios sur l'internet ;
- 4. Favoriser la mise en place de serveurs pouvant h€ ¦ï¿½berger les sites
web des radios faisant du streaming € ¦ï¿½ des co€ ¦ï¿½ts relativement abordables ;
- 5. Renforcer l'int€ ¦ï¿½gration des TIC dans la formation des journalistes
et animateurs de radio, au niveau des structures et dispositifs de
formation acad€ ¦ï¿½mique et alternative (auto-formation, formation par les
associations et les r€ ¦ï¿½seaux de radios, etc.) ;
- 6. Faciliter les n€ ¦ï¿½gociations aupr€ ¦ï¿½s des op€ ¦ï¿½rateurs de
t€ ¦ï¿½l€ ¦ï¿½communications pour r€ ¦ï¿½duire les co€ ¦ï¿½ts d'acc€ ¦ï¿½s aux TIC aux stations
radio, en particulier celles qui sont communautaires ;
- 7. Favoriser la prise en compte de la convergence par les organes de
r€ ¦ï¿½gulation des m€ ¦ï¿½dias, en cr€ ¦ï¿½ant des m€ ¦ï¿½canismes de collaboration entre
r€ ¦ï¿½gulateurs des m€ ¦ï¿½dias et des t€ ¦ï¿½l€ ¦ï¿½communications, ou en cr€ ¦ï¿½ant des
organes de r€ ¦ï¿½gulation uniques converg€ ¦ï¿½s ;
- 8. Mettre en place des actions dans les diff€ ¦ï¿½rents pays pour une
meilleure compr€ ¦ï¿½hension et prise en compte des enjeux nationaux et
internationaux de la radio num€ ¦ï¿½rique.

Supervis€ ¦ï¿½e par le Programme TIC de l'IPAO, l'€ ¦ï¿½tude a € ¦ï¿½t€ ¦ï¿½ coordonn€ ¦ï¿½e par

World's Children's Prize for the Rights of the Child (WCPRC)

World's Children's Prize for the Rights of the Child (WCPRC)
Region
Global
Deadline Date
March 1, 2009

The World's Children's Prize for the Rights of the Child (WCPRC) is
awarded to three individuals or organisations for outstanding
contributions on behalf of the rights of the child. The election of
finalists is structured as a worldwide educational and empowerment process
for the rights of the child and democracy and gives the world€ ¦'²s children
an opportunity to present the prizes that are awarded for outstanding
contributions on behalf of the rights of the child.


Through the World€ ¦'²s Children€ ¦'²s Prize the children have the opportunity to
learn about and demand respect for their rights, meet role models fighting
for these rights, and take part in the Global Vote. The prize sums are
used in support of economically disadvantaged children. Nearly 50,000
schools with 21.5 million students in 94 countries are registered as
Global Friend schools of the WCPRC, including millions of students from
the vulnerable situations. Students at these schools are entitled to vote
in the "Global Vote" - an election to decide the recipient of one of the
prizes: the Global Friends' Award. In the Global Vote 2008 6.6 million
children voted.

The other major prize, the World's Children's Prize, is awarded by an
international Children's Jury. The children on the jury are selected as
experts in the field of children's rights through their own first-hand
experiences as child soldiers, slaves, and refugees.

Three finalist candidates are put forward each year. The World's
Children's Honorary Award goes to the finalist who does not receive either
the Global Friends' Award or World's Children's Prize. All three prize
laureates receive part of the prize money to use for their work on behalf
of the rights of the child.

WCPRC was founded by Swedish organisation Children's World, but is open to
all schools and organisations in the world. There are more than 500 Adult
Friend organisations in some 40 countries, including non-governmental
organisations (NGOs), departments of education. and media projects
supporting the WCPRC. Adults (organisations, companies, and individuals)
may support WCPRC as Adult Friends and may also nominate prize candidates.

The deadline for nominations for the 2010 prize is March 1 2009.
Application Information

People (children and adults) or organisations can be nominated for WCPRC.
Self-nominations will not be accepted. All Global Friends and Adult
Friends may submit nominations. All children under 18 whose school becomes
a Global Friend can take part in the global vote for the Global Friends'
Award. Click here [1] for more information about becoming a Global Friend.

Radio Rakambia
http://www.rakambia.radio-connect.com/

Looking at political and economic aspects, Timor-Leste has an influence on
its people's lives in the development of information, mainly in the media
sector. Freedom of the press is very important, because structurally the
media plays an important role in disseminating information about policies
which affects people's lives. Presence of the media outlets, ether print,
electronic or online media are providing information to all the country's
components.

Rakambia Community Radio was established on January 10, 2001 in which the
Timorese Journalists Association (TLJA) also held its first national
congress and the Rakambia Radio helped conducted a live transmission to the
congress. This radio community station founded by ex-Timorese student
activists who were under the auspicious of the Timorese Youths and Students
Council (DSMPPTT) during the Indonesian occupation where the students had
never learnt about journalism. The Rakambia Radio is committed to
transmitting people's aspiration and voices through both local and
international news reporting, as well as other relevant programs. Rakambia
Radio also committed to providing information to the Timorese people through
youths and students.

The Rakambia Radio and other media outlets are making efforts to reach all
the country's remote areas that are facing geographical problems, such as
mountains being major challenge to the radio broadcast to be reached. It was
set up to help serve people by providing information and through its entire
capacity; the Radio Rakambia is on air with its news and cultural program as
part of Timorese people's tradition.

Vision and Mission of the Rakambia Radio

The Radio Rakambia's vision:

Creating a democratic and respectful of Timorese people on human rights,
value of humanization, culture and religion.
In reaching this vision, the Rakambia Community Radio will exercise its role
as an independent body to serve people by providing them educative,
informative and entertaining programs to the Timorese people in the nation
building.
The Radio Rakambia aims to better develop its mission through the motto of
"Haktur Lia Los, Haburas Rai-tasi Timor Loro Sa'e".

Basic principles of the Rakambia Radio are as follows:

Looking for and raising Timorese voiceless people
Providing fair and balanced information for different level of people.
Being a place for capacity building for Timorese youths in the field of
journalism.
Transmitting information to the people and spreading information broadly.
To help improve the country's national development program, mainly in the
field of information.
Being a centre for broadcasting training for the youths and students
Being an educative and informative place for people generally


Building Community Radio

Community Radio is a powerful medium in Timor due to the literacy issues of
the community and the passion for the historic and local language Tetum.
Union Aid Abroad-APHEDA is supporting two community radio stations in East
Timor.

Until now, most community radio stations have broadcast only music for a few
hours a day, so the Radio Rakambia stories mark the first regular news
broadcasts some communities have ever heard. Given the high rates of
illiteracy in many rural areas, radio news is the only type of news
available to many Timorese. The CDs are accompany by transcripts, which the
local stations can translate into local language if they wish.

Three afternoons a week, six more seasoned journalists from the newspapers
Diario Nacional and Timor Post attend advanced training. The media group
that owns Diario Nacional is thinking of starting its own radio station, and
the staff wants to learn radio skills. Five more journalists from the Center
for Investigative Journalism in Timor-Leste are also taking classes.

"They're a more complicated group to deal with, because they are already
experienced reporters," says Carrascalao. "All of them have talent as
journalists, but I can't say yet which will become good radio reporters."

RADIO RAKAMBIA

Via:
http://www.ourcommunity.com.au/member/directory_details.do?orgId=8403

Radio Rakambia was set up in January 2001 as a response to East Timor's need
for information, education and entertainment. Its social ethic is based on a
deep respect for human rights, humanitarianism, culture and religion and
community. Its aims are to give voice to the people of East Timor, to
provide balanced information from all fields of the community, to develop
journalistic talent and broadcasting training
in the Timorese youth, to assist East Timor's development in the area of
education, and to provide entertainment to the people.

As can be expected under the political circumstances and historical tragedy
of East Timor, the people at Radia Rakambia are still struggling to eat and
ferment the foundations of their radio station. Though they have received
some training from a BBC journalist they have no funding and rely on
donations. They operate in one room which becomes unbearably hot at midday.
The room contains their studio, one computer and "everyone just sleep on the
floor at night." An associate of Timorlink has been kindly providing money
from her pay-packet just so they can eat each month.

The Timorese at Radio Rakambia are extremely determined to develop and
expand their community service. Borrowing some speakers, the group travel to
various districts of East Timor to broadcast information to the more rural
areas.

Materials Needed
* They wish to build a new building (US$15,000),
* to purchase a bigger transmitter,
* to complete their FM studio equipment and
* add AM equipment to reach all of East Timor.
* US$1000 funding for their annual evaluation forum attending by people from
many districts.
* US$5,555 yearly administration costs.


Civic Education Campaign Hits the Road (January 30, 2008)

http://timor-leste.usaid.gov/programs/DG/DG_2008-January30.htm

A civic education road show called "If You Want to Know, Find Out Yourself"
is currently traveling to Timor-Leste's villages, attracting huge crowds of
people. Through its support to local organizations Insight Timor Leste
(ETIS), Bibi Bulak, and Radio Rakambia, USAID's Small Grants Program
encouraging the Timorese people to be pro-active in seeking out important
information they need to become good citizens.

The three NGOs have one thing in common€  '·they're all experienced in
delivering civic education messages. For this campaign, they are hitting the
road with a multi-media repertoire: a civic education radio drama regarding
the National Parliament and its roles and functions; a series of civic
education videos on the justice system, environmental protection and youth
in crisis; and documentaries about the Parliamentary elections and women in
Parliament. Combining education with entertainment, the groups also perform
musical concerts and conduct interactive quizzes that help deliver the
messages.

[...]

Radio Rakambia is covering 22 locations in the country's eastern districts,
including Manatuto, Baucau, Viqueque, and Lautem.
