Internews’ work in Cote d’Ivoire focused on rebuilding community radio stations in Western Cote d’Ivoire, the region most heavily affected by conflict. By training staff at local radio stations to more effectively communicate information related to reconciliation efforts and helping local journalists to understand new communications technologies, Internews helped to improve the reputation of local radio as an importance source of information for the community. This project was funded by the European Commission's Humanitarian Aid Department. See: Radio for Social Cohesion in the West of Côte D’Ivoire.
Internews also developed a strong partnership with the School of Journalism – Institute des Science et de la Technique de la Communication (ISTC) – to build an online independent, credible news platform. Www.newsivoire.com, is one of the few neutral, independently owned and operated sources of national news in the country, giving people access to more credible information.
