The scope for civil society to operate and engage in policy processes without fear of official disapproval, violence or judicial pursuit has narrowed. This guidance sheet frames the issue and formulates responses at different levels.

    Measuring Beyond Money: The Media Viability Indicators

    The Media Viability Indicators (MVIs) provide a foundation for understanding the environment in which news media organizations are operating, so media development efforts can be prioritized and potential synergies identified. They are a first approach to systematically look at the key dimensions relevant to news media viability across the globe, while helping to create a common language among the various stakeholders. This categorization and assessment framework provides a necessary first step towards understanding and addressing news media viability in different socio-economic and political environments. MVI assessments make it possible for different stakeholders to try out new, informed approaches and ways, and thereby getting a step closer to solving what is most likely the biggest challenge for modern information ecosystems.
