About this capture
Our work in Central Asia and the Caucasus
The BBC World Service Trust's work in Central Asia and the Caucasus focuses on developing the media's capacity to act as a catalyst for positive social change. We aim to give marginalised or vulnerable groups the chance to voice their concerns through the media and hold policy-makers to account.
Asia and the Caucasus is experiencing some of the fastest economic growth in the world - more than 10% per year for the last four years.
But according to the International Monetary Fund, signs of strain are beginning to appear, with average annual inflation in the region now in double digits.
Poverty is still widespread in the region. In Georgia, for example, 54.5% of the population lives below the national poverty line.
