Countering Disinformation in Moldova
Years active: 2022-present
The Countering Disinformation in Moldova (CDM) project builds the capacity of local Moldovan organisations and journalists to effectively counter disinformation operations in their country.
CDM draws on IWPR’s successful track record supporting local CSOs and media organisations in the Eastern Partnership region, including Moldova, such as the ongoing Amplify, Verify, Engage (AVE) programme and the recently launched Building Resilience in Eastern Neighbourhood (BREN) project, funded by the United Kingdom's Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF). The CDM project is supported by the United Kingdom's Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO).
