ARTICLE19 and NRGI awarded yesterday training certificates to 18 Tunisian journalists specialised in economics for their participation in three sessions held in the framework of the second edition of a training module on the governance of natural resources.
Partnership between ARTICLE 19 and NRGI provided Tunisian journalists with the opportunity to meet with a range of experts who shared knowledge and expertise.
During this training program, Tunisian journalists conducted a field visit to a phosphate mining site and to the facilities of the Tunisian Chemical Holding located in the city of Gafsa with the agreement of the Ministry of Energy and Mining. This visit, the first of its kind, enabled participating journalists to interview senior officials operating in the phosphate sector, to film phosphate processing operation in addition to learning about economic facilities.
An Internet blog was set up after the launch of the first training session held last December to improve and enhance collected data and information. This blog constitutes a Tunisian reference about the governance of natural resources.
