Strengthening the safety of Yemeni journalists in Taiz

In a conflict zone, building up the safety skills and knowledge of journalists reporting from the frontline is essential to ensure free flow of information to the public. The situation in Yemen has called for urgent measures to protect the safety of media workers and it is as part of this effort that UNESCO recently partnered with the Studies & Economic Media Center (SEMC) and the Rory Peck Trust (RPT) to organize a five-day hostile environment training for 13 Yemeni journalists in Taiz, Yemen.
