What I learnt

An eye-witness account of the Media and Development Forum in Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) which took place from 11-13 September 2008, by Rachidiatou B.


The media play a role in development through the information they promote, accompanied by awareness-raising of the people. We cannot speak about development or good governance without the media. Radio is the most reliable in terms of development in the community ; this development supposes that people working in the media are free. They should support the truth. So that the media fully play their part, people in the media must have good quality training.

It has also emerged that privately-owned media often face enormous problems and that certain groups are excluded from the media : children and young people, women, people with disabilities.

Yet they have a very important role to play in the media and in the process of development. They must be given the chance to express their opinion. The local media must also be supported technically and financially, through which children have the chance to express themselves and bring their contribution to the development process.
