IWPR's Frontline Update

15 April 2021

IWPR's Frontline Updates – unique insights from our network of local reporters and updates from our programmes.

With security challenges and threats to democracy across the globe, this is just a racing update from IWPR to flag some exceptional current reports from our network.
 
As Russia mobilises troops on the border with Ukraine, one of our key contributors in Kyiv assesses 
prospects for all-out war.
 
With Biden’s decision to withdraw troops, our longstanding colleague in Afghanistan calls for a 
more inclusive peace process for any chance of protecting human rights, especially for women.

While the West drives forward its Covid-19 vaccinations, the pandemic and the resulting economic collapse has devastated prospects for fledgling entrepreneurs in Cuba.
 
IWPR programming is doing its part, fighting misinformation about the virus in Africa, the Middle East and Asia, where a 
Cambodian radio station is unpicking falsehoods and unravelling conspiracy theories for local communities.
 
IWPR teams are hard at it around the world, supporting local voices and helping drive change in dozens of challenging environments. From substantial original frontline reporting, and a wide range of grassroots projects, these are some immediate highlights I thought you would want to see.
 
Your support for our work is critical to enable all of this to happen. For more reports and information, and to
