IPDC Emphasizes Need to Support Media Development for Public Sector Transparency

UNESCO-CI Press Release:

"The lack of public sector transparency is a major barrier to development in many countries today. Beginning April 11 and over the next three months, the quarterly Development Gateway Special on line discussion explores the practical issues of ensuring openness in government, as well as how transparency is being promoted and monitored around the world.

"Intervening in the on line discussion, Wijayananda Jayaweera, Director of UNESCO�s International Programme for the Development of Communication (IPDC), linked the transparency to media development possibilities in the developing countries and emphasized the need for more international development assistance to ensure free and pluralistic media developments."
