Afghanistan: Supporting Investigative Reporting & Civil Society
Full Project Title
Supporting Investigative Reporting in Local Media & Strengthening Civil Society Across Afghanistan
To encourage a culture of constructive public debate and critical thinking in Afghanistan by developing a networked and professionalised local media sector across platforms that values in-depth reporting and promotes good governance and the rule of law.
The project will identify and work with a cadre of Afghan journalists and related NGOs to build strong nationwide local media capacity, sharing learning and expertise around the need for greater accountability. It will establish a network of peer support for trained journalists (especially women) and targeted organisations to produce high-quality and critical content supporting the related goals of building capacity in the media sector and civil society to improve governance, accountability, and rule of law.
