ALMATY, April 17 /ITAR-TASS/. A regional seminar on enhancing regional political party representatives’ competency in party-building wil be held in Kazakhstan on April 18.
The seminar will enhance the professional competency of the political parties’ regional management on organisational, legislative, financial, and PR aspects of party-building as well as the parties’ representation in the parliament and local self-government bodies, the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) said.
The seminar will also promote the implementation of OSCE principles and commitments with respect to institutionalising a multiparty system and creating an environment in which parties can most effectively perform their essential democratic functions.
Similar seminars were previously held in Astana, Almaty, Petropavlovsk, Kokshetau and Kostanay in 2012 and 2013 as part of a project implemented by the non-governmental organisation “Public Foundation for Parliamentary Development” with the support of the OSCE Centre in Astana.
The OSCE will also organise seminar-training on environmental reporting for journalists and environmental NGOs in Kazakhstan.
The purpose of the seminar-training on environmental journalism for national and regional media journalists and environmental NGOs is to assist the wider use of modern environmental journalism practices in Kazakhstan and to raise the professional level of coverage of environmental topics with the focus on green economy. The training will be conducted by two international experts on modern media methods and techniques, the OSCE said.
