Planned meetings and activities for the GFMD International Media Policy and Advisory Centre (IMPACT) in 2021.
Donor-practitioner-academic learning meetings
GFMD IMPACT organises at least four donor-practitioner-academic learning meetings a year to facilitate regular communication, knowledge sharing and experience exchange between donors and practitioners.
In preparation for each meeting, the GFMD IMPACT team prepares a literature review analysing the most relevant research and other resources. These are shared with participants in advance of the meeting.
When a meeting, or part thereof, is held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed.
The breakout groups are also recorded but only for the purposes of record-keeping and to enable accurate reporting. The video or audio is never be shared or published.
After each meeting, the discussions are written up with the literature review to create a briefing on the topic.
GFMD IMPACT meetings are not for the solicitation of funding.
GFMD IMPACT meetings provide a dafe space for
GFMD policy and learning meetings
GFMD also organises policy and learning meetings for GFMD members (and invited guests from the donor, funder and academic communities) to analyse significant media development and journalism support issues and topics.
The topics for these meetings will be chosen based on feedback from GFMD's members and with input from GFMD's policy and learning committee.
