IMS Annual Report 2002-2003

This second annual report of International Media Support (IMS) presents an overview of the interventions carried out by the secretariat during the second year of operations. During the reporting period, IMS activities have continued with a pace and intensity similar to that of the first year.

The second year began with an international consultative meeting bringing together 50 key partners and international players in the field of media and conflict. The conference broadly acknowledged the IMS mandate and encouraged the organisation to continue to:

  • Provide quick and flexible assistance to media in conflict and conflict threatened areas
  • Ensure that the quick impact operations of the organisation would be linked to long-term media development perspectives
  • Strengthen its catalyst and facilitating/coordinating function.
