Save the date: E-discussion for radio broadcasters on farmer value chains starts on April 29!

Agricultural or farmer value chains are a hot topic these days. Radio broadcasters can play a vital role in improving farmer value chains to benefit their farming audiences. If you’re interested in learning more, Farm Radio International, with support from the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) is offering a three-week online discussion for African radio broadcasters on farmer value chains, starting on April 29.

In 2014, Farm Radio International will be offering a scriptwriting competition on farmer value chains, so participating in this e-discussion will give you a head start on your entry!

The e-discussion will introduce farmer value chains, demonstrate the role radio can play in improving value chains that are important to small-scale farmers, and encourage participants to develop ideas for value chain radio programming based on the needs of their farming audiences.

The e-discussion will be offered in English and in French on a new and improved Barza website! Barza is a social networking site for rural radio broadcasters.

Stay tuned for more details on how to log on to the new Barza and be part of the discussion.

Mark your calendars, save the date and tell your friends!
