SADC National Media Training workshop

Lusaka, December 7-8, 2022

To engage journalists in SADC Regional Integration and enhance their capacity, CUTS in partnership with the Sustainable Development Goals Center for Africa (SDGCA) held a two day SADC national media training workshop in Lusaka.

For 17 months, CUTS and SDGCA implemented a project dubbed “Engagement for Results: Capacitating Regional Civil Society Organizations and their networks to effectively participate in the SADC regional integration process”.
This project is part of the Integrated Institutional Capacity-Building (IICB) by the SADC Secretariat for CSO Stakeholders financed under the 11th European Development Fund (EDF), implemented in Malawi, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
