The World Food Program (WFP) in Liberia will today, Tuesday, 17 April embark on a two-day intensive workshop for Liberian journalists in food and nutrition security reporting methodologies.
According to a release, the journalists drawn mainly from the print, electronic and web-based media outlets will be taken through the steps in reporting and highlighting food and nutrition security activities and interventions with emphasis on resilience and livelihoods creations.
They will also be drilled in school meals management, nutrition interventions, and logistics operations within the framework of WFP’s global communications modules and approaches.
WFP’s Regional Communications Officer for West and Central Africa, Mr. George Fominyen, will serve as lead facilitator of the communications-driven exercise.
