Not only that, she continued, this activity is also expected to distribute information about village-based data collection on native Papuans conducted by the Government of West Papua through SAIK+ and the Government of Papua through SIO Papua to journalists.
“This activity increases the capacity of journalists participating in the activity in reporting, especially regarding the ability and skills to display data in narrative and visual forms,” she continued.
Then, this activity is also expected to increase the amount of news about the benefits and use of SAIK+ and SIO Papua by the Governments of Papua and West Papua, districts and various other parties by local and national media.
Caroline explained that the involvement of the media in PROSPPEK-Otsus is so that positive information, achievements, and progress of the program that has been running so far can be known to the public.
