Democracy and Governance

Democracy and good governance are directly linked to the development outcomes of a country and its people. Through a strong partnership with civil society working in these thematic areas, DTM has for more than 12 years implemented media programmes for boosting the capacities of communities to take actions that create positive changes for individuals and communities. Our actions do not only support the promotion of democracy and good governance, they also aim to enhance the voices as well as ensure effective participation of civil society in the democratic process.

We support policy interventions and also evaluate their effectiveness. Our media products, therefore, aim to make it possible for the people to speak directly with and to their leaders as well as among themselves. We also continue to design unique approaches for stakeholder engagement that encourage duty bearers to be responsive to the needs of right holders.

THE BARAZA is the development blog page created by DTM. Its main objective is to ensure that the work of development oriented organisations is well known by, and benefit a wide section of the targeted constituencies at the national and grassroots levels. There is a lot happening in the development sector which this media strategy now targets for sustained promotion.

This page will also publish media content developed by the teams from DTM’s capacity development programmes in the area of media and other contributions from local and international correspondents.
