ERIS report: Community radio stations in Cote d'Ivoire

August 2011

ERIS undertook a programme to monitor and build capacity in Côte d’Ivoire's community radio stations following the 2010 elections.

ERIS provided expert assistance and training in partnership with Convention de la Société Civile Ivoirienne (CSCI) in support of its community radio station monitoring efforts, and provided advice and remote support to community radio stations. This program faced numerous challenges over its implementation, primarily due to the rapidly declining security situation after the election.

Despite these challenges, the program was successfully carried, met all its objectives, and was brought to a close in April 2011. Following Côte d’Ivoire’s return to stability, ERIS is looking to build on this and other past projects to support the consolidation and strengthening of Côte d’Ivoire’s post-crisis recovery. Community radio stations have a key role to play in Côte d’Ivoire’s post-crisis recovery and with support and monitoring could contribute significantly to the consolidation and stability of the country’s newfound peace.
