Internews provides technical support to independent TV, radio, print, and online media sources in the Eurasia region, trains career and citizen journalists in professional, ethical journalism, and assists traditional media outlets to create interactive, multimedia online presences. Internews works with local media NGOs and associations to create active networks of media professionals, enabling them to speak out with one voice against censorship and repressive policies.

Other support includes providing legal assistance to journalists and bloggers in trouble and advocating for free and open internet policies. Internews' work in the region creates opportunities for dialogue across borders, bringing colleagues from polarized societies together in collaborative exchanges.

In 2016, Internews launched a project financed by the European Union to enable citizens and policy-makers improved access to information and data on the environment and natural resources in Central Asia.
