PRLog (Press Release) - Jul. 13, 2011 - An old saying goes, “It’s not what you say, but how you say it, that matters.”

Indeed, food security professionals increasingly realize that they must communicate their knowledge strategically for their work to have maximum impact. A comprehensive food security communications toolkit from FAO will help make sure “information leads to action” by offering tips on:

- communicating strategically with policy makers – for maximum impact

- dealing with the media  and building good relationships with journalists

- how to prepare a communication strategy

- exploiting the internet, social media and Web 2.0 technologies to deliver your message and engage in dialogues with global audiences

- writing policy briefs, early warning bulletins, needs assessment  and research reports

- improving your writing skills and editing your work

TARGET AUDIENCE

While aimed at professionals working in food security related fields, the lessons in this toolkit can easily be applied to many other fields.

RESOURCES

The toolkit includes readymade templates and is complemented by a self-paced e-learning course on food security communications.
