    Dimitra is an information and communication project implemented by the Gender and Population Division of FAO with the aim of empowering rural populations by building capacities and facilitating access to information. These are crucial tools in the fight against hunger and poverty, and in the promotion of gender equality. The project works with local partners in Africa and the Near East and is a tool to enable rural women, through their associations and grassroots organisations, to make their voices heard. Modern and traditional information and communication technologies are used to encourage networking and share information. Dimitra uses a participatory approach throughout its activities and at the launch of each new project phase the partner organisations have come together in Brussels to exchange ideas, experiences and determine a shared agenda of priorities and future actions. In June 2005, the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation ACP-EU (CTA) an d the Dimitra project decided to organise a joint Workshop which brought together 22 representatives of the partner organisations from the two networks.

    Strengthening the resilience of rural households, communities and institutions is essential to eradicate hunger and malnutrition. In resilience work, the social dimension should be systematically included to prevent and mitigate the effects of shocks and crises in the life of men and women of rural communities. This dimension relates to gender equality, participation, social cohesion, communication, access to information, etc. To this end, FAO has developed and implemented a community-driven ap proach, named Dimitra Clubs, to empower rural people. The approach has been recognized as an FAO good practice for gender equality. The Dimitra Clubs are groups of women, men and young people who decide to organize themselves so as to work together to bring about changes in their communities. They meet regularly to discuss the challenges they face in their daily lives, make decisions and take collective action to resolve their problems. In this process, rural radio stations are used as a relay to increase the communication flow, provide access to knowledge and raise awareness on themes that have been identified and requested by the clubs themselves (food security and nutrition, access to water, land, sanitation, health, gender roles and relations, climate change adaptation in agriculture, conflict resolution, etc.). This webinar gave an overview of the implementation of the Dimitra Clubs approach, highlighted its results and impact on the resilience of rural men and women’s livelih oods, and discussed with the audience on its replicability and potential for upscaling.
