Climate, communications, and innovative technologies: potential impacts and sustainability of new radio and internet linkages in rural African communities

RANET combines data from global climate data banks in the U.S., seasonal rainfall predictions from the international scientific community, data and forecasts generated in Africa, along with food security and agricultural information, to disseminate a comprehensive information package via a network of digital satellite, receiving stations, computers, radio, and oral intermediaries. Prior to RANET, this information was rarely available outside of capital cities, and much of it never travelled far beyond the research centres where it originated. http://www.col.org/speeches/mindafviii_case1.htm
