JV Programme 15: Support to Democratic Institutions (UNDP)

Programme Description:

In spite of the remarkable work already done by the Independent Media Commission (IMC), there is still a continued need to raise the level of efficiency and professionalism of journalism throughout Sierra Leone. There is a need for sustained training to increase the IMC's effectiveness across the districts so contributing to peace through facilitating constructive local political dialogue in the media. There is also a need to enhance the work of the monitors as the 2012 elections draws near. The overall objective of the project is to further enhance the capacity of the IMC as one of the statutory democratic institutions in the country that is working towards consolidating peace.

  • Special sensitization for government functionaries and civil society on the new SLBC
  • Establishment of a monitoring unit and training in reporting and use of specialized equipment; establishment of satellite office in Makina
