"Access to information". "Participation in
communication." These were popular catch phrases during the sixties
and the seventies when governments in developing countries made
provisions in their national plans calling for widespread public
information and popular participation in development planning.
Attempts were made to disseminate to the grassroots level
information about national development goals, programmes and
strategies. Efforts were exerted to enlist citizen involvement and
support in the implementation of such programmes. There was great
belief that public information and participation would accelerate
development and distribute its benefits equitably.
