The Afghan Peace and Democracy Act (Afghanistan)

Afghan Peace and Democracy Act (APDA) - Afghanistan

The Afghan Peace and Democracy Act (APDA) is an umbrella organization of eight Afghan NGOs. It is a media and communication centre which provides space and skills to its member organizations in producing expertise in media and communication skills. APDA has worked with Canadian and European organizations and donors over the past three years in training people from member organizations and students in photo, video, audio and print journalism. It produces a journal “Afghan Peace Act” which is widely circulated.

APDA has successfully implemented two projects with assistance from CIDA and collaboration with Alternatives in the past three years. Both the projects were focussed on the issues related to building peace and democracy in the country. Through the formation of the media centre, APDA has become the nodal point for many civil society organizations in their media production activities.
