In order to ensure that the daily issues faced by the poor and their communities in rural areas are recognized, it is important that their stories are heard and their voices amplified. With funds from the Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the specialized agency of the UN, they will call journalists from all over Latin America to participate in this workshop, which aims to facilitate the work of journalists when they have to tell the story of rural progress . This course aims to generate a specific knowledge expertise and increase familiarity and understanding of the challenges faced by rural communities. It also aims to contribute so that journalists can present new points of view.

Participants will visit projects sponsored by IFAD near Lima and will have the opportunity to listen and interview regional leaders and experts.

This course should not be seen as an isolated workshop. In fact, they intend that all journalists who are selected to attend the workshop, return to their countries of origin to cover and tell stories related to these issues.
