"How can the international community work with local actors to reach remote rural African communities using agile communications and community engagement to create COVID-19 resilience?"

A year into the COVID-19 pandemic, with new strains of the virus spreading and vaccines being distributed, there is still fear, vaccine scarcity, and much more. In the context of rural communities in sub-Saharan Africa, these factors pose unique challenges. Communication for development (C4D) methods provide an opportunity to ensure rural populations can stay protected into the second year of this global crisis and beyond. This webinar, hosted by Farm Radio International, discussed what is being done and what is next for the international community when it comes to fighting the disease with information, including through use of information and communication technologies (ICTs).
