The event culminated in a week long training supported by UNESCO in the same city to develop the capacity of 40 community radio practitioners from nine local radios to deliver professional, ethical, and gender-responsive reporting through journalistic standards and codes of ethics.

All participants could join seasoned media professionals to explore how these standards and practices fit into broader efforts, fostering the power of radio for advancing gender equality in and through diverse forms of broadcasting.
