GIJN Joins Global Media Development Forum
GIJN has joined the Global Forum for Media Development
(GFMD), a membership network of more than 200 media assistance organizations active in 80 countries. The Brussels-based GFMD works to make independent media development an integral part of international development strategies, much as education and health care are today. Among GFMD’s current priorities is working to ensure that access to information, independent media, and freedom of expression are included in the UN’s post-2015 development agenda. The GFMD has put together a tool kit and resource page
on what you can do to help the campaign.
