Radio Program

Radio is one of the most popular and accessible communication media in Nepal. With the emergence of FM Radio stations, radio has become an important means for government and civil society to relay development messages to the wider public. Radio reaches all areas of the country – even its most remote districts. For this reason, PPCR is communicating messages about mainstreaming climate change in development through radio programs. The radio program ‘Jalwayu Pariwartan (Climate Change)’ will cover local, national and international climate change issues. The program will share knowledge and learning, explore strategies for climate change adaptation from local to national level, and inform the public about government policy, priorities, and action plans..


The main objectives of the Climate Change Radio Program are to:

  • inform and raise awareness of communities, the general public, VDCs and District level planners and other stakeholders on climate change impact and related issues, government policies, plans and ongoing and planned activities.
  • encourage and advocate local level adaptive and resilience capacity.
  • disseminate good practices, case studies and lesson learned from the Pilot Program for Climate Resilience.

Frequency, Day and Time

  • Duration:                 30 ± 2 minutes
  • Frequency:              Once a week on Sunday
