Media Development and the IPDC
The International Programme for the Development of Communication (IPDC) works to improve the technical and human resources of independent and pluristic media in developing countries and those in transition. The IPDC helps to fund a range of projects – from training courses and support for community media to the modernization of news agencies and broadcasting organizations.
Often, IPDC is the only source for media development in small island developing states. Since the early 1980s, support has been provided to more than 150 media development projects in small-island regions, amounting several million US$.
