Coronavirus has influenced all spheres of life, society, and every individual. We had to adapt to new conditions and build up our capacities. The team of IWPR Central Asia in self-isolation continues to achieve its goals and develop analytics in the region and support the media sphere in Central Asian states. Using innovations and new technologies, we have managed to cover more audience.
We are pleased to share our work with you, as well as to encourage you to go forward in any circumstances.
In 2020, the coronavirus challenged journalists. Fake information and outright lies about COVID-19 were spreading as fast as the virus itself. Nevertheless, the professional media around the world managed to take the information back under their control and, together with competent specialists, provided people with verified fact-based information.

“Climate change” or “climate crisis”? How can the discussion of existing problems help in understanding their importance, urgency, and scale, or urge to immediate action?

In addition, during this month, the Kilogram of Content marathon finished, as well as a number of intensive training on blogging and podcasting. Read more about this news in November digest.
