Several media outlets reported that on 21-23 June, UNFPA organized training for Tbilisi and Kakheti-based journalists. Thirty-five journalists, bloggers and TV producers gathered to discuss Sensitive Reporting: Gender Equality, Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights. Participants had a chance to talk to experts, share their thoughts and expertise on these issues, and discuss new media and new opportunities. Alongside the training, a side session was held for the TV producers and UNFPA staff where the UNFPA mandate and ICPD agenda was discussed and areas of further cooperation identified. Since 2000, UNFPA/Georgia has been conducting the trainings and seminars for journalists and other representatives of mass media.
The training was organized by UNFPA within the frameworks of the UN Joint Programme “To Enhance Gender Equality in Georgia,” through the generous support of the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida). Watch in Georgian: YouTube, YouTube, YouTube, YouTube
