Developing The Media In South Sudan

Integrity’s media specialist Lisa Clifford has returned to Juba to continue her work with the Association for Media Development in South Sudan (AMDISS).

AMDISS is an organisation of South Sudanese media outlets founded in 2003 to address the news and information void in the country and the lack of capacity by local journalists to respond to the crucial issues of human rights, good governance, freedom of expression and democracy. AMDISS is also leading the effort to ensure media legislation guaranteeing freedom of the press is adopted by the Southern Sudanese government.

Lisa has been helping AMDISS set up a media centre for local journalists and hire new staff, including a manager who is responsible for the day-to-day operations. The centre is intended to be a useful resource for media professionals in Juba and around the country and a hub for training activities which will be conducted by AMDISS and project partners International Media Support and Norwegian People’s Aid.

This time, Lisa will work with the AMDISS executive board and staff members to facilitate the development of a new strategy to help guide the organisation in the years ahead.
