This report examines trends in non-U.S. donor financing of the media development and media for development sector. The report by Mary Myers, an expert on international media development with many years of experience in this field, surveys European and other governments and donors spending on international media development.
It examines where the money is going, what types of media development programs are being funded and trends in terms of donor priorities and approaches. As the report makes clear, reporting standards and definitions vary widely from country to country, making precise comparisons difficult. However, the report provides a valuable resource by pointing how donors compare in the emphasis they place on media development out in general.
