Reaching IAEA technical cooperation stakeholders via radio

Most of the IAEA Member States receiving technical cooperation are in the developing parts of the world. In many areas of Africa or Asia people may lack internet access or experience poor internet connection, some do not own a TV. Therefore, one of the best ways to share information in these Member States is via radio.

UN radio is a valuable tool for the IAEA’s technical cooperation programme to raise awareness about its activities and the issues TC projects address. Radio broadcasts ensure the best possible outreach throughout all regions.

Celebrating the World Radio Day, a few UN radio broadcasts on the IAEA’s technical cooperation activities can provide an idea of what the programme is all about:
