60th IPDC Bureau Meeting

The Bureau Members meet in order to decide on media development projects to be supported in 2016. Discussions on issues linked to IPDC's action to promote media development will also be organized.
International Programme for the Development of Communication (IPDC) was set up in 1980 as the only intergovernmental programme in the UN system mandated to mobilize international support in order to contribute to sustainable development, democracy and good governance by strengthening the capacities of free and independent media. Since its creation, IPDC has channelled about US$ 105 million to over 1,700 media development projects in some 140 countries. IPDC’s Council is composed of 39 Member States elected by UNESCO’s General Conference. It meets once every two years to reflect on the latest trends in the media development field and give direction to the Programme.
