||In the Andes mountains communities have tested and successfully implemented sustainable development practices. Unfortunately very few people know about those experiences and many communities could benefit from and feel inspired to replicate them if they were widely disseminated.
With this project we expect to produce 50 TV and Radio programs to be disseminated by Infoandina and Mountain Forum email subscribers, InfoAndina TV and Infoandina Radio channels. Each program will showcase at least two concrete sustainable development experiences from the Andes. The dissemination of the material will include different community TV and community radio networks in the Andean countries and is expected to reach at least 20 000 people.
While the TV and radio programs will be produced in Spanish, the documentation prepared for each case will be translated into English and uploaded at the Mountain Forum portal. The project will also work with the community TV and community radio networks to adapt the content to local languages like Quechua or Aymara.
A test of the proyect was conducted, with six pilot programs prepared and successfully broadcasted this year via InfoAndina TV. The programs were extremely well received by the public. These are available at http://www.infoandina.org/infoandinatv
