Deeds and Misdeeds in the Forests of Cameroon

Democracy Information Bank (DIB)

Democracy information bank (DIB) is an important expected output product of our project (output 1.4). It is a compilation of relevant reference material for radio journalists to consult in the process of producing democracy-promoting programs. It is thus a bank in which journalists can access information from diverse sources on democracy and the media, and on how radio can be used to promote peace, democracy and development in Africa, democratic practices at the local level, an on how to manage a rural or community radio. We keep updating it. Members of our debate clubs created across Cameroon find the material equally useful in conceiving debate topics that promote democratic values. We need to emphasis on the fact that the content of the DIB is drawn from a wide variety of internet sources (Google).
