Abstract

Community radio as a tool for the development of the rural population of the north west region of Cameroon is aimed at evaluating the contribution of community radios to the development of the region. The focus here is on the conflict-stricken region of the north west region of Cameroon rocked by crises since 2017. Qualitative and quantitative research designs were adopted for this study. The data derived was coded and analyzed to come out with the findings that community radios have significantly contributed to the local development of the region though in crisis in the following ways: improving agricultural activities of the local population, advancing peace and culture, and general sensitization of the population, providing a forum for small and medium-sized enterprises to reach out to the population through advertisements at affordable rates and finally sensitizing the public on health issues focusing on HIV/AIDS prevention, COVID-19, vaccination, and family planning.
