The course provides guidance on how to design and implement a communication strategy for food security information. Using realistic examples, the course illustrates the various components of a communication strategy. It provides concrete, detailed guidelines on how to communicate through the media and how to present information to policymakers to influence the policymaking process.

It is currently available in English; other languages are planned.

The course has three units:

  • Designing your communication strategy
  • Working with the media
