an interesting document.

 

"In Africa, agriculture is a key story that needs to be at the top of the news agenda. Women produce 70 percent of the continent’s agricultural output and are therefore central to the story. !is report documents the scant attention that both agriculture and women agriculturalists have received from news media in Mali, Uganda and Zambia. In 2008, the IWMF entered into a training relationship with six news media houses in
these three countries to provide sustained in-house training over a three-year period. Local journalists with expertise in science and agriculture are serving as the trainers. We are proud to be in partnership with these media houses that have been named Centers of Excellence for the project: L’Essor and Radio Klédu in Mali, The Daily Monitor and the Uganda Broadcasting Corporation in Uganda, and The Times and the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation in Zambia."
