The majority of calls to Radio Ergo’s feedback platform this week (22-27 October 2020) were about locusts, which have been the predominant cause of concern for some weeks. Other concerns were water scarcity, with the number of calls rising. Few callers this week had questions or comments on Coronavirus. Livestock herders and farmers continued to call with questions for radio vet and radio farming segments.
The feedback platform is open for listeners to call in on the topic of their choice. We listen to and transcribe the messages received and compile weekly reports, as a way of sharing these local voices among a wider community, including national and international decision-makers and responders.
