As one of the local partners on the USAID Open Spaces Zambia Project, MISA Zambia took part in a public forum facilitated by Panos Institute Southern Africa (PSAf) on the importance of the Access to Information Law.
The public forum was held at Makalanguzu market in Choma District, Southern Province. The USAID OSZ project is funded by USAID and implemented by Internews in partnership with FHI 360.
The objectives of the project are to strengthen the democratic foundations of freedom of speech and assembly; build independent and new media; and safeguard a space for activists, Human Rights Defenders (HRDs), and oppositional voices to protect the democratic space in Zambia. MISA Zambia is one of the partners on the project.
