This training is the sixth in a series of courses under the program for Strengthening Media Oversight of the Extractive Sectors, which started in 2010. Alumni of the previous five classes have represented all media platforms and many have become focal points or in-house consultants on extractive issues in their newsrooms. The training is interactive, practical, participant-driven, and guided by adult learning principles.
