Environmental Radio


The ProCEEd team and its strategic partners have been producing regular environmental radio programs at the national and provincial level which listeners can follow regularly. These nationwide and provincial radio broadcasting activities support ProCEEd's objective that knowledge, attitudes and behavior related to the environment, biodiversity and climate change in Laos will improve through better access to relevant information. Thus, rural target groups should be empowered to better mitigate and adapt to climate change and risks, and protect biodiversity and the environment in general.


ProCEEd has supported the environmental magazine "Our Environment" of Lao National Radio (LNR) since 2013 through coaching, quality management, and production assistance. The project has also  assisted environmental radio through capacity development in relevant journalistic skills. For example, staff from provincial and district radio stations in Khammouane, Houaphan, Sayaboury and Bolikhamxay joined a basic training workshop on environmental radio in late 2015. A local pilot program had been tried out with LNR Khammouane in 2014.


As a result, LNR Khammouane with its radio stations in Thakek and Boualapha and LNR Houaphan with its radio stations in Sam Neua and Houameuang produced a total of 48 15-min features on environmental issues. The provincial and district radio stations are broadcasting the environmental radio programs between 2 Feb and 20 May, 2017. In addition, 12 of these features were broadcast in Khmu and Hmong language by LNR Houaphan.


So far, the following radio programs have been supported by ProCEEd:
