Norway to Fund BIRN Regional Project in 2006

Posted on

The Norwegian Foreign Ministry has generously provided BIRN with funding to support its regional training, reporting and debate activities in 2006.

The significant grant will also help BIRN to implement its sustainability strategies, thus providing welcome support for the BIRN Network’s activities beyond the end of this year.

The support of the Norwegian Foreign Ministry to the Balkan Programme of the Institute for War & Peace Reporting during 2004 and 2005 was central in the evolution and launch of BIRN as an independent local civil society initiative.

For more information on how to get involved in supporting or participating in BIRN’s projects, contact BIRN Regional Network Director Anna McTaggart.
