Food riots across Africa, sparked by the global economic crisis, have made food security the continent’s most pressing issue. Is your newsroom equipped to cover the issue quickly, intelligently and in depth?
Africa is home to three-quarters of the world’s “ultra-poor”. Food aid may solve their immediate hunger, but longer-term solutions are needed to bolster food security.
Sign up your journalists to the Regional Hunger and Vulnerability Programme’s two-day training workshop on Thursday and Friday 22-23 April in Dunkeld West, Johannesburg.
The Workshop will be facilitated by a veteran journalist who is also an experienced trainer. Journalists will receive coaching on writing stories. Interactive practical sessions will equip journalists to find, plan and write compelling stories on poverty and food security in future.
