Project Description

Global Forum for Media Development

Established in 2005, the Global Forum for Media Development (GFMD) is an international network of around 200 journalism support and media development organisations across 70 countries. As a not-for-profit, Belgian-registered ASBL, GFMD’s main focus is to foster collaboration as well as an exchange of information and experience among its members and partners with the aim to foster viable and independent journalism, greater transparency, and more pluralistic and sustainable media environments. In addition to GNI, GFMD is also a member of the United for News Coalition, a collaborator with the Journalism Trust Initiative (JTI), and was formally granted special consultative status by the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) in July 2018. | Site Link
