Community broadcasters are a crucial part of a healthy, pluralistic media sector. They are independent and not-for-profit, and are governed by and in service to the community they represent.The UNESCO Community Media Sustainability Policy Series has been created to assist media regulators and government institutions provide a regulatory environment that recognises the value of community media and supports its long-term sustainability.
Developed in conjunction with the Centre for Law and Democracy, it builds upon the recommendations from the landmark UNESCO event on Community Media Sustainability: Strengthening Policies and Funding, held in September 2015. The event brought together governments, broadcasting regulators, community radio networks, academia, and NGOs, as well as intergovernmental and UN organizations, to discuss concrete ways ensure a healthy future for community media across the world.
