[trx_sc_title title_style=”accent” title_align=”center” link_style=”default” title=”Goals and Objectives” description=”Over the course of the past ten years, there have been many advances to the right of access to information in the region in which AFIC has played an important role. Yet, there continues to be a great need for country-based advocacy. While there are 21 countries on the continent with access to information laws, in many cases these are not being well implemented or utilized, and/or they are in danger of backsliding; and 33 countries still lack statutory rights to information.

Consequently, there is a plethora of issues and activities in which AFIC might engage; in a sense, the organization is spoilt for choice. AFIC has identified those areas/themes that can serve the dual role of advancing ATI at the 2 regional level while also properly supporting its members.”]
