Organisation: Global Forum for Media Development (GFMD)

Location: Online

The report Coordinating Media Assistance and Journalism Support Efforts was developed as part of activities of GFMD’s International Media Policy and Advice Centre (GFMD IMPACT), an initiative that helps donors, funders, policy-makers and practitioners to make informed, evidence-based decisions on strategy, programming, funding, and advocacy for media development and journalism support.

This study was conducted as part of an information-sharing effort inviting media development and journalism support organisations, both international and local, to coordinate recovery and assistance efforts in Lebanon. This work is being implemented by GFMD in cooperation with the Samir Kassir Foundation’s SKeyes Centre for Media and Cultural Freedom, and with support from International Media Support (IMS).

The report summary is a condensed version of the main findings and recommendations in the full report and it is meant to provide a basis for peer review and further development of recommendations.

Aims of the report: To analyse current practices in information-sharing and media-assistance coordination efforts (in Lebanon, Syria, Ukraine and other cases), highlighting common pitfalls as well as best-practice approaches.

Members and partners of GFMD are invited to leave their comments on the draft findings and recommendations here.

If you would like access to the full draft report, please contact us.

The full report will be published in November 2022.
