Kevin Perkins, Executive Director, Farm Radio International Email: kperkins@farmradio.org We are proud that she is a partner in the Farm Radio International community," says FRI's executive director Kevin Perkins. Kevin Perkins, Executive Director of Farm Radio International Perkins also thinks that the PRC model developed by Farm Radio International can be successfully applied to health, natural resource management and even human rights issues and projects. "Several agricultural organizations and other NGOs along with radio broadcasters are showing a keen interest in adopting the PRC model to deliver their programs," said Perkins. The radio campaigns were developed between 2007 and 2008 and implemented in 2009. Farmers, broadcasters and agricultural experts were involved in an exercise to identify key improvements in agricultural practices that would become the focus of the PRCs. "The PRC model isn't a typical top-down campaign in which outsiders market a new behaviour to passive subjects", says Perkins. Kevin Perkins, Executive Director kperkins@farmradio.org Tel: 888-773-7717 613-761-3658 Ces approches aident les petits exploitants agricoles et les agriculteurs marginalisés à obtenir une meilleure production alimentaire et à appliquer de meilleures pratiques agricoles, tout en renforçant leurs voix au sein de leurs pays » a déclaré Kevin Perkins, directeur général de Radios Rurales Internationales. Kevin Perkins pense également que le modèle de CRP élaboré par Radios Rurales Internationales peut être appliqué avec succès à la santé, à la gestion des ressources naturelles et même aux enjeux et aux projets concernant les droits humains. « Plusieurs organismes agricoles et autres ONG ainsi que des radiodiffuseurs se montrent très intéressés à adopter le modèle de CRP pour exécuter leurs programmes », de poursuivre Kevin Perkins. Les campagnes radiophoniques ont été élaborées entre 2007 et 2008 et mises en œuvre en 2009. Des agriculteurs, des radiodiffuseurs et des experts agricoles ont été impliqués dans un exercice visant à identifier des améliorations clés dans les pratiques agricoles qui allaient devenir le point de mire des CRP.
