    Establishment of community radio stations
  2. Capacity Building for Independent Pluralist Media

    This project was elaborated in response to the lack of professionalism among journalists in Cameroon. It seeks to provide an opportunity for journalists working in The Standard newspaper to develop their intellectual and professional capacities through an appropriate and well-tailored training programme, with a view to ensuring sound professional practice and reinforcing the newspaper's editorial independence. Reporters will be trained on media law and media ethics, and taught how to improve their professional skills.

  3. Promotion of Investigative Journalism

    The 2-day workshop took place in Luanda in January 2011. The training targeted around 30 journalists (mainly coming from rural areas) who were trained in investigative journalism. CEFOJOR had previously evaluated training needs in Angola, and investigative journalism was considered a high priority given that it is rare within the Angolan press due, among other reasons: to the absence of specific training (in investigative journalism) and to the strategy of the newspapers and radio broadcasters.
  4. Strengthening the Capacity of the Angola News Agency

    Created in 1976, the Angola Press Agency (ANGOP) was for a great part of its existence used as the propaganda instrument of the one-party state. However, after the democratization process and the introduction of a multiparty system in 2002, ANGOP became the provider of news for all media in the country. In order to promote equal access to information, freedom of expression and media pluralism, ANGOP is soon to be transformed into a parastatal company.

  5. SABA: Climate Change Awareness Policy

    Climate change already affects every member country in the SADC region: droughts, floods, unseasonable weather events, pests and food shortages. People on the ground need to be empowered by the awareness of the authorities. Broadcasting plays a pivotal role in bringing these urgent issues to the attention of the authorities. Education of the authorities and information of the public will enable them to take informed and responsible decisions.

  6. CBA: Building the Knowledge Base of Broadcasting Regulators to Ensure Public Service Broadcasting

    The CBA works with broadcasting regulators in order to establish a framework for democratic principles in broadcasting. In order to reinforce the CBA's Guidelines for Broadcasting Regulators, supported by UNESCO and published in 2007, with a second updated edition in 2009, there is a need for an annual Workshop for Broadcasting Regulators. The CBA proposes to hold it first in Johannesburg in April 2010, and to invite 24 Commonwealth Regulators / those responsible for broadcasting regulation.

  7. CBA : Media Self-Regulation Training in East Africa

    This proposal seeks support to introduce a 2-part training programme for news editors and radio station managers representing community and mainstream broadcast outlets in the Commonwealth Countries of East Africa (Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania). The purpose of the project is to encourage and improve media self-regulation on matters of independence, fairness and ethical approach via a 'top-down' training model that will promote the production and implementation of internal editorial policy frameworks.

  8. MFWA: Strengthening the Coordination and Development of a Network of Freedom of Expression Organizations in Africa

    A contract was signed with the Media Foundation for West Africa and a Regional Conference was organized in Accra, Ghana, on 28-30 October 2005. A total of 42 participants from 33 organizations dedicated to freedom of expression and media freedom in Africa participated at the conference, which was organized in partnership with Media Rights Agenda (MRA), the Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA) and Journalists en Danger (JED).
  9. JED: Expanding Monitoring Networks and Lobbying for the Defence of Press Freedom in Central Africa

    Journalistes En Danger (JED), an NGO created in 1998, works for the decriminalisation of crimes against the press in Central Africa, and thus contributes to the development of a free and pluralistic press within the region. The project encompasses two parts for the first year of a four-point, multi-phase global project in the nine-country region. This section of the project supports the provision of networks to monitor attacks on journalists and media, and encourages lobbying for the defence of journalists and media.

  10. CIRTEF Post-production and Professional Training Centre in East Africa

    In response to the lack of high-performance equipment in African television and cinema industries, CIRTEF launched a project to create a complete post-production unit with good access to international communication networks in East Africa. Two such centres have already been successfully created in West and Central Africa.

  11. Capacity Building of Comorian Press in Modern News Gathering and Production Methods

    This project will improve the participation of the Comorian population in the economic and political dialogue through the print media, both in print and online. This objective will be achieved through improving the professional skills and capabilities of the media workers, so that they can encourage national reconciliation, better information-sharing and make the best use of the media in fostering economic prosperity.

  12. Creation of a Community Multimedia Centre by Extending Radio Fara'a

    Radio Fara'a is a rural community radio which is managed and operated by a Listeners' Club known as the Fara'a Zumunta Club. The club boasts a potential audience of over one million listeners throughout the districts bordering Benin and Nigeria, and the Gaya department. The Listeners' Club sets the radio's policies and lines of actions. As a collectively owned venture whose mission is to broadcast programmes addressing the concerns of rural inhabitants, Radio Fara'a contributes to the overall development process in Niger.

  13. University of Mauritius: Establishment of an Audiovisual Training Centre

    The purpose of this project is to consolidate the existing degree course for communication and media professionals, many of whom are already working or plan to work in the local mass media. It is more particularly aimed at offering hands-on training in audiovisual production, including radio and television. The project therefore intends to provide proper equipment to the Communication Studies Unit of the University of Mauritius in order to offer appropriate training to students who aim at working in the mass media.

  14. Audiovisual Media Training

    In Kenya, new developments have led to the setting up of independent radio and television stations. Viewers now enjoy a variety of listening and viewing options. However, the number of independent media professionals and establishments in Kenya is not increasing and the prospect of a positive impact on cultural, social, political and economic development are limited. Policies still need to be created to ensure that broadcast media can succeed in the liberalisation of airwaves, which is a very important aspect of local content production and broadcast.

  15. Support for Radio Mauritania's Training Centre

    The absence of a journalism school and training at the University of Nouakchott, is a serious handicap for media development and the actual exercise of freedom of expression in Mauritania. In Mauritania, practising journalists possess little or no qualifications and receive their training on the job, and often go on courses, study trips or scholarships abroad, offered by the UNESCO Office or other international cooperation agencies. Most of the journalists at Radio Mauritanie - the only radio station in the country - were recruited at the end of the 60s and will soon be retiring.

  16. Shinyalu Community Multimedia Centres, Kakamega District: Ethics and Standards Workshops for Journalists and Radio Presenters

    This project plans to set up and run a community radio station combined with a Community Multimedia Centre (CMC) in the Shinyalu constituency. The project proposes to foster literacy activities so as to contribute to the reduction of a knowledge divide and to increase the socioeconomic welfare of the local population. The constituency comprises five locations: Ilesi, Kambili, Khayega, Murhanda and Shivuye, with a total population of some 104,000 people.

  17. Community Multimedia Centre, Bondo district

    The ACI/NAI has been mobilising resources to supplement those of the IPDC. It is also seeking collaboration with other donors who have the same interest in the area. By October 2005, the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) through the Kenya College of Communication Technology (KCCT) approached UNESCO to have a joint project in Bondo which would be complementary to the IPDC project.
  18. Development of free press institutions

    Approved with a funding of US $ 20,000, this project was implemented by the East African Media Institute of Kenya (EAMI-K), on behalf of whom the equipment was purchased. However, after the last Kenyan elections the EAMI-K was dissolved and transformed into the Media Council of Kenya (MCK). As such project implementation was delayed. Since then, negotiations with MCK have taken place with a view to make the press club fully operational. Alternative sources of funding are also been sought with a view of completing the necessary equipping of the centre.
  19. Development of National News Agency

    Implemented over the period 1987-1991.

  20. Establishment of a Community Multimedia Centre in Sabou

    Pengwende Women's Association has been actively involved in community development for more than a decade in the Sabou area which comprises 68 villages. Through various community projects, the Association promotes a participatory approach to development at the grassroots level. In rural and semi-urban areas like Sabou and its surroundings, radio is the most effective medium. Despite poverty in the area, most households have their own radio receivers. The project therefore proposes to establish a community radio station combined with a telecentre in Sabou.
