IMS Annual Report 2004-2005

This annual report presents a review of the activities and interventions carried out by IMS from 1. September 2004 to 31 August 2005.

During its fourth year of operations IMS has focused on strengthening its core mandate activities, i.e. providing support to media and media professionals in conflict areas around the world. We have expanded our activities both in terms of depth and width covering an increasing number of countries and conflict areas.  In some instances, i.e. in Liberia, Sudan, Nepal and Colombia, we have maintained a focus over a longer period of time. This has not fundamentally changed IMS as a rapid response mechanism. It is, however, an expression of a recognition that impact, through a low-cost approach, is only achieved through consistency, flexibility and strategic innovation.
