1) Objective

The British Embassy in Lima is seeking bids for a project that supports and improves media freedom in Peru. Bids should look to demonstrate their ability to deliver a diagnostic report that includes:

Recommendations should consider different kinds of actions and actors (international cooperation, civil society organisations, journalists associations, government institutions, etc.). Recommendations should consider a sub-national approach as detailed in point a.
