Webinar: Internews Manual – How to Manage Misinformation in a Humanitarian Context – Wednesday, September 18, 2019 – 12:30pm to 1:30pm BST

To launch a new Manual on how to manage misinformation in a humanitarian context Internews is hosting a webinar for humanitarian, media and community practitioners.

By connecting the dots in local information ecosystems in humanitarian contexts, the Internews Rumour Tracking Methodology shows what needs to be done to manage misinformation, build trust and allow reliable information to build traction among those who need it most. They will highlight key elements of the manual and place the methodology in the context of some of the trickiest misinformation challenges faced in our work.

The webinar will be facilitated by Viviane Lucia Fluck, PhD, who authored the manual. The manual was produced with financial support from the United States Agency for International Development.

Wednesday, September 18, 2019 – 12:30pm to 1:30 pm British Summer Time / BST
