This event is the fourth in the series of community-based workshops aimed at sensitizing the communities on the importance of setting up community radio stations. This IPDC-funded project contributes to expanding the plurality and diversity of the media in Nigeria, and enhances the capacities of local communities in the use of media for community development and democratic discourse.

This project is designed to make a strategic contribution to the development of community radio in Nigeria through training of grassroots communities and regional awareness raising events. The project builds on over five years of community radio advocacy in Nigeria and meets needs clearly expressed by civil society and community-based organizations and by grassroots communities to increase awareness of community radio and to build capacity for community radio development.

The project involves four community-based workshops to be held in four different zones in Nigeria and one national seminar.
