Developing Radio Partners

 

Mongolia

 

mongoliaAs part of the World Bank’s Civic Engagement Strategy in Mongolia to increase opportunities for citizen participation and encourage social accountability, DRP completed a mission in Mongolia in April 2005 to examine how community radio might be used to achieve these objectives.

Mongolia’s six community radio stations form the only independent radio news sources in Mongolia and are among only a few independent media in the country. Working closely with national and international NGOs also concerned with media development in Mongolia, DRP’s mission assessed the current state of community radio development in Mongolia, evaluated opportunities for growth in this sector, and determined prospective partnerships between the Bank and other actors to achieve increased participation and better penetration of Bank programs.
