Free Info & Media Development

The Free Info programe is buttressed on the belief that for society to prosper, there is need for openness, transparency and honest dialogue. That is not possible without access to credible, quality information. The programme thus promotes availability of public information to citizens. It seeks to ensure that there exist institutionalized provisions for access to information augmented by sufficient capacity amongst citizens to interrogate and utilise information to affect the way they are governed and promote inclusive sustainable development. This is achieved through active participation in interagency, multistakehoder, cross sector dialogue/action towards opening up public information. Such as the Open data movement; Open Government Partnership; the Data revolution and supporting the push for enactment of Freedom of Information laws in Sub-Saharan countries.
