Oo, Htun Naing; Sutheerawatthana, Pitch; Minato, Takayuki
Applied Environmental Education and Communication, v9 n1 p58-74 2010
This article analyzes the practice of information dissemination regarding pesticide usage in floating gardening in a rural area. The analysis reveals reasons why the current information dissemination methods employed by relevant stakeholders do not work. It then puts forward a proposition that information sharing within organizations of and among information providers is a key element in effective information dissemination. The analysis and proposition are expected to be helpful for government and international nongovernmental organizations in the studied area to adapt their strategies of information dissemination. This article is unique because the studied area is a rural area in Myanmar, a country in which only a few studies on environmental issues in a local context have been undertaken. (Contains 7 tables and 2 figures.)
