Community listeners’ clubs. Stepping stones for action in rural areas

FAO-Dimitra, August 2011

This publication summarises the unique experience of the community listeners’ clubs set up in Niger and the Democratic Republic of Congo by FAO-Dimitra and its partners. These actionbased information and communication processes have proved so successful that Dimitra decided to share the experience.
The first chapter offers a brief overview of the community listeners’ clubs, their goals and internal functioning and the results achieved. The second chapter tells the story of the listeners’ clubs in the words of the stakeholders, explaining how they were established in the two countries. The third chapter sets out more practical guidelines on the stages involved in creating community listeners’ clubs.

Communicating Gender for Rural Development. Integrating gender in communication for development

FAO-Dimitra, August 2011

Meeting food security, nutrition and gender equality objectives entails applying development approaches that allow rural communities to participate and take control of their future. Of the many approaches used by FAO, there is one that is particularly effective at enabling the most marginalised groups, including women, to take ownership of their development and achieve economic and social empowerment: introducing gender into communication for development. Capacities for harnessing the full power of this approach are fairly limited and there have been relatively few theoretical examinations of the subject.

In Communicating Gender for Rural Development, the FAO-Dimitra Project shares its experience in this area. Aimed at all development practitioners, the publication encourages the inclusion of a gender perspective in communication for development initiatives in rural areas. It suggests practical ways of going about this, thus aiming to change attitudes and working practices so that projects and programmes take greater account of the specificities, needs and aspirations of men and women.
