#WhyAg4Dev in the News

December 12, 2022

In addition to briefings of politicians and stakeholders, and our #WhyAg4Dev social media campaign around the Doing Well by Doing Good reports, we have started an outreach to traditional media.

Our first press release on the 1 December national launch is here.

Subsequent media approaches will be made around the planned events in all States and Territories through to June 2023.

We will include here a running list of coverage for the campaign, and will provide a report on social media from time to time.

Please join us in our efforts to bring attention to the benefits of international agricultural research for development (Ag4Dev) by using our social media toolkit. Download a backgrounder on both of our reports or access other #WhyAg4Dev resources.
