NOTE: the Finding a Voice project (2006-08) was a collaboration between Queensland University of Technology, University of Adelaide, Swinburne University, UNESCO and UNDP.
This book has a particular audience in mind: it is aimed primarily at program-side policy strategists and decision-makers. We hope that those who are implementing similar projects or work in the ICT and communication for development fields will find it useful. We believe this work should also be accessible to and prove to be of interest to donor organisations and other researchers interested in communication for development. We write this book in the hope that on the one hand it will reinforce the need for horizontal and participatory approaches to communication. On the other hand we hope it will help to explain just why this is at the same time important and challenging, through the glimpses the book gives of participatory development communication in action.
