Internews worked in Niger, in partnership with the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES), to strengthen the capacity of local CSOs and media outlets to foster citizen participation and increase oversight of natural resource management in Niger. The project also aimed to amplify the voices of local Nigeriens by creating clear channels of communication and enhancing interactivity between local communities and local media outlets.

The main activities of this project included strengthening the capacity of journalists and media outlets to report on natural resource management and enabling local communities to participate in the dialogue over natural resource management through crowdsourcing platforms connected to local media. Internews also worked with OpenOil to produce a comprehensive “wiki” on the extractive industries in Niger.
