The deadline for submitting entries to the scriptwriting competition “African Farmers’ Strategies for Coping with Climate Change” is fast approaching! DCFRN and the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) invite all African radio organizations to submitenter a script. Entries should be prepared with the input of local people (especially farmers), and should be on one of the following topics related to local adaptation to climate change:
-Water and soil management
-Cropping strategies emphasizing drought-resistant plants
-Livestock management practices
-Fisheries and Agroforestry
-Other (for original topics related to coping with climate change that are not listed above.)We thank Pius Sawa Murefu, of Radio Sapientia in Kampala, Uganda, for being the first to submit a script! We look forward to reading more of your entries. The top 15 submissions will be shared with the DCFRN network, and each of the 15 winners will receive a high quality digital audio recorder. Details on the competition – including an information kit on climate change and scriptwriting tips – can be found online at: http://scriptcompetition.net/.
