The Listening Post is a platform for two-way communication between extension services and farmers. It takes advantage of the ubiquitous access to radio and mobile phones in rural areas of sub-Saharan Africa to engage farmers on development initiatives. Through the Listening Post, development organizations share information and encourage dialogue with radio broadcasts, while farmers provide information and feedback in real-time via mobile phone.
