AMMAN — The Centre for Defending Freedom of Journalists (CDFJ) on Monday is scheduled to launch the Iref (know) project to enhance transparency and boost the right to access information.

CDFJ, in partnership with USAID's rule of law project and with financing by USAID, will work with ministries and public departments to develop the procedures necessary to access information, according to a CDFJ statement.

The centre will also cooperate with the King Abdullah II Centre for Excellence to include this right among the criteria for the King Abdullah II Award for Excellence in Government Performance and Transparency.

The three-year project seeks to help draw the best practices necessary to provide information to visitors of public departments, among others.
