Assessing the capacity, challenges and sustainability of the community radio sector in Ethiopia

Ethiopia is presently undergoing dramatic political changes which just months ago were unthinkable. This has opened a window of opportunity for media reform, and several international organisations are working with the government to develop new media legislation.

International Media Support (IMS) carried out two initial assessment missions in Ethiopia in June and August 2018, and the community radio sector was identified as an area of possible cooperation and support.

This report synthesises findings from desk research and field-work conducted by IMS.
