Project or report lab
Tuesday, June 5, 2018
09:30 to 10:45

Showcasing Radio Ndeke Luka (RNL), the speakers will present the Radio Ndeke Luka project, co-financed by the Trust Fund for the Central African Republic Bêkou. They will engage in an honest and lively discussion around gender equality and social cohesion in post-crisis CAR.

This project lab will gather representatives from RNL, CAR national authorities, and the donor community to discuss about each other's role and complementarity in promoting gender equality and safeguarding social dialogue on the topic.

Starting from showcasing good practices and examples of radio broadcasts that made a difference, panellists will delve into the national and local contexts of the CAR, looking at how media like RNL promote social cohesion and inclusion.

Please note that the session will be held in French.
