Date modified: 9 October 2020

While civil society is able to operate relatively freely, oligarchic actors continue to wield substantial influence. The media landscape has become increasingly politicised, while independent outlets grapple to survive. With most civil society organisations concentrated in the capital, civic engagement in the regions remains low.

EED approach and added value

  • Provide support to young political leaders and greater pluralism in political debate
  • Support for independent media
  • Work with partners in remote regions to support grassroots civic activism

Examples of supported initiatives

  • Independent media outlets struggling to survive due to political pressure and/or lack of funding
  • Local civic organisation fostering women’s rights
  • Initiatives monitoring government’s budgetary activities
