Reporting Rural Poverty and Agricultural Development

Thomson Reuters Foundation works with journalists to show how rural development is a story that matters to everyone, spanning science, climate change, business, politics and social innovation.

In order to ensure the daily issues faced by rural poor people and their communities are acknowledged, it is important that their stories are heard and their voices are amplified.  With funding from the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the specialized UN agency, they will bring together journalists from around the world in Rome to attend IFAD’s event on innovative approaches to inclusive financing for rural transformation.

The 2030 Global Agenda requires the development of innovative approaches to incentivizing sustainable and inclusive investments. Such approaches are about aligning private and public investors around shared sustainable development objectives and mobilizing diverse sources of development finance (including climate finance and private finance), channeling it towards rural investors, including smallholder farmers and rural small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

Being at the conference will allow journalists access to high profile delegates, leading experts in the issues, including IFAD and UN technical experts, as well as a number of smallholder farmers who will be invited.

IFAD works with those most affected by poverty, food security, gender inequality, environment, and climate change.

This should not be seen as a one-off workshop; indeed, we would expect all journalists who are selected to attend to pursue stories along these issues in their home countries after the workshop.

Please provide the following: Statment explaining your motivation to attend; your CV or biography; and two examples of your work.
