IFPRI To Train Benue Journalist On Agricultural Policies

From Msughshima Andrew, Makurdi

 

The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) has organised a two-day capacity workshop for journalists in Benue to promote effective agricultural policies.

 

In a letter signed by the institutes’ communication Specialist, Onyeche Douglas and made available to our correspondent, in Makurdi, the training will commence on July 23 to July 24.

 

Titled “Policy Communication for Journalists”, the training is organized as part of the activities of the Feed the Future Nigeria Agricultural Policy Project.

 

The training is to promote inclusive agricultural productivity growth, improved nutritional outcomes, and enhanced livelihood resilience for men and women through an improved policy enabling environment.

 

The goal will also be achieved through increased national capacity of journalists to generate and analyze information and to formulate evidence-based policy options for considerations by decision makers and stakeholders.

 

The training will improve policy processes that are driven by empirical evidence and based on active dialogue among relevant stakeholders

 

Our correspondent reports that the Nigeria Agriculture Policy Project is designed to address this need for policy research and capacity building.

 

It is to ensure that Nigerian institutions are equipped to respond effectively and in a timely manner to the increasing capacity, knowledge and information needs of Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, FMARD.

 

The Feed the Future Nigeria Agricultural Policy Project is a five year, $12.5 million initiative, jointly promoted between Michigan State University (MSU) and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI)’s Nigeria Strategy Support Program (NSSP) and funded by USAID-Nigeria.
