The help desk and GFMD IMPACT meetings are supported by our resource centre which collates literature reviews ahead of events, detailed reports from meetings, as well as research and policy papers authored or commissioned by GFMD IMPACT.
Resources are organised by type of literature featuring: guides, declarations, policy briefs, working papers and primers, academic research, research and reports, articles, podcasts, case studies and evaluation and impact reports.
Literature is further broken down by topic analysing (among other themes): disinformation, sustanability and viability, media development effectiveness, AI, regulation, legislation & design of platforms.
“…for many, sustainability has become a “buzzword”, an injunction to assess the likelihood that the effects of an intervention will continue after it is completed..” - Michael Leroy, 2021, Sustainability: Going Beyond the Buzzword. Research Reviews for Media Development Practitioners.
There is no common understanding about the definition of “viability”, which goes under several names, including “media sustainability”, “financial/ economic sustainability”, “business viability”, or “media resilience”. - PRIMED Viability Learning Brief by MDIF
