Project ‘From Coast to Press: Her Voice’ kick started!
MSSRF is an Internews grantee for the project ‘From Coast to Press: Her Voice’ which kick started recently. The project will address the two-fold problem identified in the Bay of Bengal region:
1. Lack of representation of vulnerable populations (women’s voices) in major media outlets, and
2. Lack of access to quality information on climate change and building resilience.
The overall objective is to enable journalists to identify, access and understand, also appreciate local voices, especially women from coastal communities and also provide a platform for these women to receive quality information on climate change adaptation using community radios as dissemination points.
M S Swaminathan Research Foundation (MSSRF) established in 1988 is a not-for-profit trust. MSSRF was envisioned and founded by Professor M S Swaminathan, agriculture scientist with proceeds from the First World Food Prize that he received in 1987.
