Strategic communication training for novices

Thomson Foundation designed and implemented a training programme to demonstrate the essential need of communication to the United Nations' mission and to its development programmes in Nigeria. Training was aimed at people implementing projects – from supporting democratic institutions to introducing greener techniques for fish smoking – who needed to communicate the impact of their projects on different aspects of Nigerian society more effectively.
