The Centre has produced an average of 5 (RRRPs) a year and currently has over 50 packs in stock (see

Each pack deals with a specific topic on rural and agricultural development in ACP countries – ranging from crop storage to cassava, small ruminants or soil fertility. The choice of topics is based on suggestions made by ACP partners and on the priority topics identified in CTA’s strategic plan. Each pack comprises the material necessary to produce a radio programme on a specific topic: interviews on tapes or CDs, a transcript of the text, suggestions for introducing each interview, technical information on the topic and advice on how to use the pack. The interviews are recorded by experienced African journalists from East, Central, West and Southern Africa. Typical interviewees include agricultural experts, extension workers, technical advisers working for NGOs, vets, personnel from Ministries of agriculture as well as researchers.

Users of the packs include rural radio program producers, extension workers and farmers. Currently more than 200 radio stations in Africa regularly receive the RRRPs.

The tender will cover the production and the distribution of the packs in French and in English for 3 years.

If you wish to receive more information and be invited to tender for the RRRP, please contact Ms Sarah Bel, before June 25th 2007.
