[creative-radio] Radio: Connecting Papua


Radio: Connecting Papua
by Eriyanto and Esti Wahyuni
This December 2009 report is the result of an independent survey
commissioned by Media Development Loan Fund (MDLF) to look at the impact of
a radio station that MDLF helped to build in the Central Highlands of Papua
in cooperation with Indonesian radio news agency KBR68H and the non profit
Indonesian Association for Media Development (PPMN). "The research
reveals...[that] in Kurima, Radio Pikon Ane is not just a medium of
information and entertainment; it is also a community mobiliser....The most
obvious impact of Radio Pikon Ane is that it offers access to and a media
for information, never before available in such a geographically isolated
area with such poor communication infrastructure...."
