Journalists to Undergo Training in Food and Nutrition Security Reporting

MONROVIA, Montserrado – Several Liberian journalists are expected to undergo training in food and nutrition security reporting.

The exercises are organized by the World Food Programme and will run from April 17 to 18 at its Pan African Plaza office in Monrovia.

According to a WFP press statement, the journalists are drawn mainly from the print, electronic, and web-based media outlets.

WFP said the journalists will be drilled through the various steps in reporting and highlighting food and nutrition security activities. A special emphasis will be placed on resilience, school meals management, nutrition intervention, and logistics operations within the framework of organization’s global communications modules and approaches.

The press statement indicated that WFP’s regional communication officer George Fominyen will serve as lead facilitator during the two-day training.

At the end of the training, participants are expected to form a small corps of journalists for the purpose of highlighting food security, nutrition, and agriculture-related activities in the media while supporting one another’s professional enhancement.
