What we do

ComDev training in Dakar

Our mission

CCComDev serves as a hub for knowledge sharing on communication applied to agriculture and rural development issues such as family farming, climate change, food security, natural resources management, and disaster risk management.

By fostering the exchange of ComDev experiences, methodologies, and policy options, we aim to develop communication capacities, build online and offline networks, and strengthen partnerships.

We strive to involve different actors – ranging from farmers, civil society, and indigenous people organizations to rural institutions, universities, research, and development organizations – to support the creation of a global community of practice able to maximize the potential of communication for sustainable agriculture and rural development.

Our work

We broker information about learning needs and training opportunities in ComDev worldwide. Our ever-growing ComDev library includes a wide collection of knowledge resources such as learning tools, technical papers, case studies, and briefs, including the Communication for Rural Development Sourcebook. Interesting audio-video materials and presentations are also found in our multimedia gallery.

We regularly share news and updates about ComDev initiatives, events, and opportunities, documenting local and international ComDev stories and supporting the systematization of lessons learned.

Our ComDev community is an interactive feature meant to facilitate social networking and stimulate technical debates, policy dialogue, innovative learning modalities, and concrete collaboration. This is closely linked to the existing regional ComDev platforms.
