Under the auspices of the 2012 AIBD Asia Media Summit, the United Nations agencies hosted a pre-Summit one-day workshop on Monday 28 May 2012 for media leaders and practitioners from across the Asia-Pacific region to jointly examine some of the key issues around Millennium Developmentattainment and the media’s role within this, with the aim of moving towards greater mutual commitment for enhancing media coverage across the region towards the MDGs ‘final push’:
What progress has been made in the region and where do we stand?
How much are regional media covering Millennium Development Goals issues?
What are the blockages for media coverage on MDG issues?
How can the United Nations and the region’s media work closer together to jointly contribute to MDG attainment and development outcomes beyond 2015?
Firdoze Bulbulia, President of CIFEJ and Chairperson of CBFA, was a key speaker at the event.
She will be also present at the bi-annual meeting of the Prix Jeunesse International Advisory Board held on June 7th 2012 in Munich.
