KAS Media Africa

The KAS Media Programme Sub-Sahara Africa, based in Johannesburg, South Africa, has been in operation since 2002 as part of the KAS Global Media Programme.

Focused broadly on the advancement of democracy and the formation of opinion, our activities have a regional bias and demonstrate a multilateral approach. Our aim is to cross-link media’s local stakeholders to one another as they:
* acquire knowledge and an understanding of their neighbouring countries.
* learn from best practice methods, working processes and experiences of their colleagues in order to implement them in their own local or national environment.
* establish valuable work relations by exchanging correspondent reports.
* build cross-border cooperations that encourage regional integration.
* can discuss problems and issues (e.g. governmental censorship) more effectively on a regional basis than on a national scale.
