Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA) Awareness Raising Trainings for Journalists and Civil Society Organizations
The Project “DCFTA Awareness Raising Trainings for Journalists and Civil Society Organizations” aims to increase the capacity of the media and civil society representatives on informing the population and monitoring of DCFTA implementation process, to raise awareness of journalists to report on DCFTA in the regions and the capital as well as to enhance the knowledge and skills of civil society to monitor, communicate, advocate and participate in DCFTA implementation throughout the country.
During the period of five months, the series of trainings will take place in Tbilisi and five regions of Georgia (Kutaisi, Telavi, Gori, Akhalkalaki, Marneuli and Batumi) mainly targeting journalists reporting on economic policy, business climate, agriculture, trade, regulatory environment and other relevant topics as well as SMEs, industrial, agricultural unions, Professional Unions, NGOs working in DCFTA related fields and other stakeholder groups (local governments, municipalities).
The abovementioned project will enhance the quality of journalists’ reporting on trade and DCFTA as well as improve the capacities of the central and regional NGOs dealing with DCFTA and strengthen the support towards DCFTA-related policy reforms.
The training program is implemented by Georgian Foundation for Strategic and International Studies (Rondeli Foundation) with the support of USAID/Governing for Growth (G4G) in Georgia.
