"The programme had incredible impact...besides being a radio soap opera that is helpful, it also entertains and encourages people in communities here, because you hear more radio than TV. Listeners said the programme was good, educational, and useful for the community & it should continue for much longer." - Radio Catandica, Vila Pisa Bem
Have you ever wondered where your food comes from? Really thought about the journey from field to fork? For the Africa Food Security Urban network (AFSUN) CMFD Productions has embarked on an exciting series of radio documentaries and short dramas to chronicle the complex issues of how cities in Southern Africa feed themselves. While the global food agenda often focuses on rural agricultural development when it comes to discussions on food security, Southern Africa is one of the fastest urbanizing regions in the world – more people are living in cities, yet the concept of urban food security is largely left off the table.
