Independent media and open information serve a crucial watchdog function, providing citizens with the information they need to keep the public and private sectors accountable. In many countries repressive legal environments inhibit the media’s ability to play this role and some journalists and civil society actors lack the skills to conduct the in-depth investigative reporting that is essential to accountability.
