The Agroecology School for Journalists and Communicators which is under ESAFF Uganda is pleased to introduce the Agroecology Media Grant an innovation to support the coverage of stories that are focused on agroecology in Uganda and beyond.

The Agroecology Media Grant seeks to promote and amplify just and inclusive news and narratives around agroecology, based on the belief that accurate and compelling media plays an important role in informing, engaging, and activating individuals and groups to take part in practices and processes to protect our food systems. This grant’s objective is to assist local journalists in covering local agriculture news.

Small-scale farmers in Uganda came up with the idea for the Agroecology School for Journalists and Communicators to encourage journalists and communicators to appreciate and promote Agroecology. As more individuals switched to eating healthier foods that small-scale farmers produce, this would also benefit both the general public’s health and the farmers’ incomes.
