The AlertNet website provides a variety of services and tools for journalists and broadcasters. If you broadcast in a region where there has been conflict or people have had to leave their homes, you may find this online course informative: “Reporting on refugees and displacement.” In clear and easy steps, it provides facts, figures and definitions, and will help you explain the stories behind the numbers. It is global in scope, but does have sections relevant to Africa. The course is free of charge. You may work through the course at your own pace and when you choose. It should take about 30 minutes to complete.
