Moderator Birgitte Jallov, Director, Coach, Adviser, Trainer and Consultant at EMPOWERHOUSE, launches themes of importance for income generation for radio every day. Some of the discussion forums had to be closed already, because the big number of contributions made it difficult to navigate.

The concept paper and daily summaries are available on the CAMECO resources site covering stories from Latin America, Africa and Asia with the following headlines:

– Income generation and sustainability (ownership, quality of programmes etc)

– Mobilising the community for income generation / Barter and in-kind support to radios

– On-air income generation

– Off-air income generation

– What kind of income is acceptable?

– Using community radio networks to raise income

– Effective strategic management of Community Radios – for stable income generation

– Enabling, legal framework for community radio stations

– Collaboration with local and national governments

The CAMECO site furthermore presents profiles with a focus on income-generation of the following stations:


Radio Wa, Uganda

Radio Pa’i Puku, Paraguay

Radio Salaki, Burkina Faso

Radio Media Village, India

A section was opened with documentation from debate participants:
