ATTITUDES TOWARDS HUMANITARIAN NEWS WITHIN THE AID SECTOR: SURVEY RESULTS
By Martin Scott (@martinscott2010).
How do those involved with or interested in the aid sector view media coverage of humanitarian issues globally? What are their main sources of news and information and how useful do they find them? What impact, if any, does news coverage have on their work?
This document reports on a field study conducted in Sri Lanka under the initiative ‘Measuring the Impact of Aid Agency Programmes in Rapid Onset Natural Disaster'. This project, funded by DFID and managed by Oxfam, set out to develop a methodology for evaluating the contribution to change achieved by post-disaster interventions.
