2020 is testing us all. COVID-19 has disrupted development efforts, provoking devastating setbacks in food security and gender equality, and sparking a search for remote solutions.

How can interactive radio and ICTs respond to the needs of underserved communities? How can interactive communication approaches support the continuation of important programming? And how can we ensure that women, youth and rural communities aren’t left out in the recovery process?

Is the COVID-19 pandemic showing us a better way? Will the practical shifts we are witnessing emerge as more fundamental changes to the ways in which we do development?

Using our experience in 11 sub-Saharan countries, Farm Radio International addressed the opportunities, successes and challenges in operating fully remote-led projects. Learn how you can do the same — and what experiences, tools and approaches are key in running effective interactive communication projects during and beyond the pandemic — all by watching this webinar

Featuring: Communication for development experts, experience from ministries of agriculture, and practical experience from country-level staff implementing remote projects.
