The USAID Media Program is seeking effective approaches for producing media content that show how European values and prosperity reflect and affect life of typical Georgian household. This includes what benefits, opportunities EU integration could bring and how it could change aspects of everyday life – education, healthcare, employment, etc. to Georgia.

The Program supports a networked media sector that provides Georgia’s citizens and diverse communities with the civically relevant, fact-based independent information they need to build a more just and inclusive society.

Program objectives:

  • Preserve and strengthen an enabling environment that fosters press freedom and access to information
  • Develop more effective self-regulation among media professionals and information producers that sets standards for quality and ethics
  • Increase the availability of civically relevant, fact-based, independent sources of information

The USAID Media Program is a five-year program funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by the International Research and Exchange Board (IREX).
