UNESCO Plans Media Assistance in Iraq

02-09-2003 ()
Iraq needs a real public service oriented broadcaster that can provide the population with credible news. This is one of the results of a joint UN and World Bank needs assessment mission to Iraq in August, in which UNESCO was represented by Christina Dahlman. “The need for assistance is urgent”, she says.
“First of all, there is an immediate need for humanitarian information and for professional training of the Iraqi media professionals, who for many years have been used to reporting only on direct orders. But there is also a more long-term need for developing a real public service oriented broadcaster, that can provide the whole of the Iraqi population with credible news about the developments in their country.” Dahlman observes. The mission also identified the need for Media Centers to ensure capacity building of Iraqi media professionals.

UNESCO, together with other UN agencies is now preparing the final report of the mission and in a Donors Meeting in Madrid in late October decisions will be taken on eventual follow-up.
