This publication aims at systematizing and disseminating the activities undertaken by the Communication for Sustainable Development Initiative (CSDI) in the department of Yapacaní, Santa Cruz, Bolivia.
Yapacani was the first pilot area where the Bolivian component of the CSDI began its activities at the local level. At an exploratory stage, a participatory assessment of communication needs and opportunities for innovation and rural development was conducted. Subsequently the project designed a Local Program in Innovation and Communication, based on the assessment’s results and with the involvement of multiple local stakeholders. The result has been the identification of a number of key issues for the communities that will be implemented through Local Plans for Innovation and Communication (PLICS).
