2024 Ethiopia Media Support project aims to strengthen the training skills of the media self-regulatory body, Ethiopian Media Council (EMC), to cement its legitimacy and credibility within the media sector, where it works to promote the freedom of the press and guarantee that journalists take ethics into account. The EMC will benefit from two train-the-trainer training programmes. The first will focus on combating misinformation and hate speech, while the second will cover journalism in sensitive contexts and the safety aspects of reporting. This project is part of a programme implemented in partnership with the Cooperation and Cultural Action Service of the French Embassy in Addis Ababa, which supports the EMC in its media self-regulation role, and the Institut National de l’Audiovisuel (INA – France’s national audiovisual institute), which helps to preserve and promote the Ethiopian Broadcasting Corporation’s archives.

Course of the project

  • The training of Trainers programme for trainers will run from February 2024 to September 2024. 
  • Each cycle will include 3 courses of 6 days each.
  • The courses will involve a large proportion of practical exercises and role-playing so that trainees can gradually acquire and consolidate the skills they need to become trainers in one of the areas covered by the programme.
