Media as a Development Education Resource. Public Report of Meeting June 10-11, 1982.
Inter-American Development Inst., Washington, DC.
With the selection of the role of the media in development education activities as the theme for the meeting, the Advisory Committee on Voluntary Foreign Aid (ACVFA) continued its dialogue with the private and voluntary organizations (PVO) community on the crucial issue of educating the U.S. public about hunger and related international development issues. The state of the art in development education through mass media techniques was discussed during the 2-day meeting. Major concerns of participants were focused in two areas: the need for sharper distinctions between fund-raising and education efforts and the need for increased coverage of development progress and problems by the news media. A third issue addressed the need for Agency for International Development (AID) and the PVOs to develop a communications policy and set of objectives and procedures. Additionally, sessions dealt with public education, reporting about the Third World, World Food Day, collaborative efforts in development education, media approaches, AID education activities, and advisory committee business. The eight appendices include: a list of participants; a discussion of development education as an integral component of a PVO; a list of development education project grants; and the charter of the ACVFA.
