FFB maintains a dynamic website to disseminate messages to the targeted audience. Social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Reddit and YouTube, are very effective in making information available across different stakeholder groups. FFB utilizes social media tools to effectively communicate with mass people and end-users. FFB has moderated a national-level round table discussion on agribiotech issues, which was followed by the publication of a special newspaper supplement to reach end-users and mass people.
FFB is working with the Department of Agricultural Extension and Agriculture Information Service (AIS) under the Ministry of Agriculture for knowledge sharing and science communication capacity building of DAE and AIS officials. Selected officials of DAE and AIS have been trained on science communication, along with getting information on the country's transgenic crops and important agribiotech social perception issues.
