Young Social Reporters wanted for the Fin4Ag Conference in Nairobi

The Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA), in collaboration with the African Rural and Agricultural Credit Association (AFRACA), is organising its 2014 International Conference on Revolutionising finance for agri-value chains, “Fin4Ag” from 14-18 July 2014 in Nairobi, Kenya.

The purpose of the conference is to help decision-makers to break through the walls that so often prevent innovation, in this case for smallholder-inclusive agricultural finance. The conference has an international focus. Delegates will represent different economic segments of society including the private and public sectors (including Central Banks) and civil society, resource users’ organisations, development practitioners and academics. It will include many experienced professionals from developed and developing countries,  having solid experience in smallholder-inclusive value chain finance

Social reporting for the Fin4Ag conference

To raise awareness on the event, engage on-site participants and reach out to a wider audience remotely, CTA wants to repeat last year’s experience (ICT4Ag13) and have a Social Reporting Team for the Fin4Ag conference.

The Fin4Ag social reporting team is composed of 2 sub-teams; on-site social reporters and online social reporters.

On-site social reporters

15 social reporters will be selected to participate in a two-days’ training on the use of digital media for social reporting. Part of the training will also be on Finance for Agriculture value chains, which will give the reporters an over-view on the theme of the conference. The training will also provide an opportunity for the reporters to get hands-on experience, ask questions and practice.

At the end of the conference, the social reporters will be awarded a certificate. Out of the 15 youths, 5 will be from Kenya, the host country.
