‘Funding for Media Development by Major Donors Outside the United States’  is the new report released by CIMA (Centre for International Media Assistance). 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.

‘Funding for Media Development by Major Donors Outside the United States’ and a short summary of the report are available for download, along with previous CIMA reports and videos of CIMA discussions and events, at http://cima.ned.org. Also on the site is a comprehensive bibliographic database of media assistance resources with information on more than 800 reports, articles, books, and manuals related to the media assistance field. We welcome suggestions for new resources for the bibliographic database.
