Media professionals training
Capacity building is a continuous process that contributes to professional development in both breadth and depth of, in this case, communication and information professionals and institutions.
UNESCO supports formal education for aspiring journalists, assists developing countries in strengthening their communication capacities by developing independent and pluralistic media and raises awareness among the public in making best use of communications resources.
In particular, UNESCO supports the setting up of media facilities that can provide non- partisan information, offers advisory services on media legislation and helps in the rebuilding of media infrastructures. UNESCO's strategy in this area takes into account the possibility of innovative application of ICT to reinforce media pluralism and to address the critical needs for building capacities among media professionals, including women.
