MediaDeltaState-6-26-17On June 28, 2017, the Feed the Future Nigeria Agricultural Policy Project held an interactive session with the Media in the Delta State. Twenty one journalists from 17 Media Houses in Delta State attended the session. In addition to representatives from radio (4), television (5) and print media (11), the Public Relations Officer and other staff of the State Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources including the Director, Planning Research and Statistics also attended. Three of the 20 Journalists were also Newspaper Publishers.

The session focused on the role of the Media in strengthening the Agricultural Policy Process in Delta State. The Agricultural Policy Research Network (APRNet) collaborated with the Nigeria Agricultural Policy Project in moderating the interactive session with the Media in Delta State. A major outcome of the session was the commitment by one of the publishers to devote a column on agriculture in his Newspaper which hitherto had none.  The policy project will leverage on this session in its upcoming project activities on capacity building for media.
