20 years ago Namibian sound engineer Phil Schmaman took part in a two-month digital audio workshop at DW's Radio Training Center in Cologne - a forerunner to DW Akademie. He says he's still benefitting from the course.
DW Akademie spent a year working closely with the Zanzibar Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) as it began introducing reforms. The project has now wrapped up and Regional Coordinator André Surén reflects on the changes.
