Funding

IPDC carries out its mandate through the funding and implementation of media development projects which are approved annually by the Bureau of the Intergovernmental Council.

The IPDC Special Account is a common funding pool, which enables the the Programme to ensure a global approach to media development. Fifty-nine countries have contributed to the IPDC activities through this account.

Some projects are financed under Funds-in-Trust arrangements (FIT) with individual donor agencies. FIT is an arrangement of funds earmarked for specific projects approved by the IPDC Intergovernmental Council, which could either be fully funded or receive supplementary funds to those given from the Special Account.
