RFA to create a multi-media hub for ‘The Water Project’

As the global community marked World Water Day, Radio Free Asia (RFA) focused coverage and multimedia content on the state of freshwater sources and its availability in RFA broadcast countries.

RFA is now collecting their language services’ coverage onto one English language hub web page, launching a series of slideshows documenting the issue in these countries, and producing videos on water scarcity affecting farmers, fishermen, and ordinary people, as well as an animated promotional video illustrating the issue among their wider audience.

In April, the project will launch a mobile app for citizens to photograph and chart water issues pertaining to the state of local fresh water sources upon which villages, towns, and communities depend. Interviews with experts will also be made available on the hub page.

A series of investigative videos of original content will be unveiled this spring.
