For ensuring media stability, protection and resilience in these challenging times, FOICA suggests equipping media practitioners with knowledge and skills in order to avoid defamation lawsuits and to protect themselves.

The training sessions were held for journalists including from regional media to train and teach on how to protect themselves against legal issues that arise from publishing and producing content, to avoid libel in their publications, what kind of wording to use to avoid of being sued, what legal mechanisms could be used to be protected in lawsuits.
