Call for Signatures: Urgent appeal for support to Sudanese media

Status: Open

Organisation: Sudan Media Forum

Deadline: Ongoing

Location: Online

The Sudan Media Forum calls for signatures for its urgent appeal for support to Sudanese media.

One year after the start of the conflict in Sudan on 15 April 2023, independent journalists, media outlets and representative organisations from Sudan gathered with international media support and assistance organisations in Kampala, Uganda.

The conference was held between 23-25 April 2024 and was organised by CFI, the French Media Development Agency, under its “Kalimat Sudania” project, with funding from the Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of the Sudan.

The groups, gathered under the umbrella of the Sudan Media Forum, with the facilitation of the Global Forum for Media Development (GFMD), discussed the catastrophic crisis of war in Sudan. They discussed deeply about the role media and journalism can play in alleviating the plight of the citizens of Sudan.

They issue this statement urging for more assistance from the international donor community to assist them and the Sudanese media sector as a whole on four urgent priorities and lines of engagement:

  • Safety of journalists
  • Media survival
  • Disinformation and hate speech
  • Communications infrastructure
