Cameroon has been feeling the effects of three humanitarian crises for several years: the displacements caused by violence in the Lake Chad Basin, the crisis in the North-West and South-West regions brought about by separatist forces and growing security concerns on the country’s eastern border due to the crisis in the Central African Republic.

In local crisis situations such as these, the media is very well placed to encourage dialogue between different groups and help resolve conflict. “Talk Paix” aims to train Cameroonian media professionals on how to produce reliable and verified information, as well as interactive content that promotes dialogue. It also introduces young members of civil society organisations to media education and digital citizenship.

Thanks to the training sessions, we learned how to choose relevant stories, to find the right angle and to draft articles in a simple way. We adopted the behaviours of a professional and committed journalist and learned that journalism today is focused on peace and solutions.
