An international team of IPS reporters and editors will be in Rome June 15-22 to cover the 38th Biennial Conference of the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO).

In addition to online coverage in print and video, IPS will produce a printed daily multi-lingual conference newspaper, “TerraViva FAO38.”

Journalists from different regions have been selected to report from the proceedings on different aspects of FAO’s mission, including raising levels of nutrition, improving agricultural productivity, bettering the lives of rural populations and contributing to the growth of the world economy.

The newspaper in English, Spanish and French will be printed and distributed at FAO headquarters between June 15 and 22. Digital versions of individual articles and the full conference paper will be made available at “TerraViva FAO38.”

Selected reporting from the Conference Week will be translated for distribution through IPS’ news wire service and 20 associated language services.

In a joint communication effort, IPSTV, the new TV branch of IPS, is organising five Media Talks on issues related to media and food security in the framework of the 38th FAO Conference.

Panelists from government, civil society, academia, FAO, media and the private sector will engage in daily live-streamed conversations (2.30 p.m. CEST) on five current topics related to food, development and media:

June 17th: The Millennium Path – Successes and Challenges on our Way to a Zero-hunger World

June 18th: Africa – Will the Forthcoming Economic Boom Change Africa’s Rural Backyard?

June 19th: Sustainability – Losing and Wasting Food in a Hungry World

June 20th: Food Prices — The Expensive Basket. When Bread and Rice Become a Luxury

June 21th: The Role of the Media — Covering the “Hunger Story” in the Multimedia Environment

The talks will be broadcast in three languages (English, Spanish, French) from the Sheikh Zayed Conference Hall at FAO in Rome via live web streaming: www.ips-tv.net (available starting June 17th)

The multimedia coverage of the 38th FAO Conference is the first step in a renewed collaboration between IPS and FAO.
