The Center for International Media Assistance (CIMA) and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) are pleased to release, Official Development Assistance for Media: Figures and Findings, by Eduardo González Cauhapé-Cazaux, a development expert recently with the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and Shanthi Kalathil, a consultant on development, democratization, and the role of technology in international affairs.
The report examines the recent history of major donor support for media, using snapshots of recent OECD data to paint a picture of how industrialized democracies have sought to incorporate this issue within the broader development architecture. The authors find that while the major industrialized country bilateral donors have devoted time and attention to media-related activities over the past several years, there is still much work to be done with respect to boosting support for independent media, which occupies a still-miniscule fraction of donor attention and funding.
