Guideline: How to do Community Radio

7 December 2002

Community Radio has a special place in UNESCO’s programs. The aim of UNESCO’s community radio program is to address crucial social issues at a community level, such as poverty and social exclusion, empower marginalized rural groups and catalyze democratic processes and development efforts.

The author of this primer, Mr. Louie Tabing is a pioneer in both the concept and the practice of community radio in his country the Philippines and much wider.

Several ways and means are possible to set up a community radio, organize it or compose its equipment. This primer builds on the experience of Tambuli, which in the past ten years has grown from one community radio to a network of 25 stations.

Often located in remote rural areas, these stations are “operated in the community, for the community, about the community and by the community”.
