In Asia, Internews supports journalists and civil society actors across a range of media landscapes to promote open and fair media laws, freedom of expression, and democratic reform. By providing training and technical support to radio and TV broadcasters, producing programming for local audiences, and encouraging the adoption of innovative journalistic tools, Internews builds the capacity of local journalists working on the ground on a wide variety of issues that span from the environment to peace and security.

In fragile conflict zones, Internews enables journalists to report safely, encourages peaceful development, and empowers progressive voices. As Afghanistan emerges from years of war, Internews is working closely with its partners across the country and in neighboring Pakistan to ensure a robust media sector that contributes to democratic governance and economic prosperity.
