On July 13-14, 2016, a team of three IFPRI trainers facilitated an introductory Policy Communication training course at Ahmadu Bello University which was attended by 25 faculty members (20 males and 5 females). The Policy Communication course was designed to provide participants with a practical framework for understanding and integrating communication concepts, approaches, and methods into program planning, policy planning, implementation and program management. The training emphasized on developing participants’ knowledge and skills to effectively communicate program and policy data that can be used to support decision-making within the context of the country’s national development agendas. The course was well received and appreciated with participants expressing satisfaction for both course content and delivery. The training was led by Ms. Elisabeth Douglas (Communications Specialist, IFPRI) with assistance from Ms. Bisola Oyediran (Communications Assistant, IFPRI) and Mr. John Mazunda (Country Program Manager, IFPRI).
