On 25th April 2011, University of Central Asia in partnership with the Development Policy Institute, the Alliance for Budget Transparency, and the Kyrgyz Stock Exchange Press Club, launched the first round of training in economic journalism and access to information for journalists in Bishkek, Kyrgyz Republic.
Administered by the World Bank, the Budget Reporting for Journalists and Media Training project is a component of the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic’s “Information Matters –Transparency and Accountability in the Kyrgyz Republic”(IMTAK) initiative, which builds on its commitment to enhance information transparency by focusing on budget processes at the local government level.
Funded by the Governance Partnership Facility, the 18-month project is designed to improve the understanding and awareness of journalists and media representatives on public finance issues. The project is also designed to promote demand for additional transparency by raising awareness and strengthening journalists’ ability to analyze, present, and disseminate, accurate information about fiscal and budgetary issues at the local and national levels.
