Abstract: For people who are caught up in conflict and other emergencies, the need for information is often acute. Frequently, they are separated from their families, lack shelter and adequate food, and are scared and confused by the events occurring around them. Media programming tailored to the needs of such people can provide an essential information lifeline. At the same time, the media can play a role in efforts to actively prevent and resolve conflicts, and support post conflict peace-building. This guide has been produced by DFID's Conflict and Humanitarian Affairs Department and Social Development Department to serve as a reference point for DFID staff and partner bilateral and multilateral development agencies. It aims to provide geographical desk officers and sectoral advisers with a resource to strengthen both their understanding of the role media can play in conflict and other emergency situations and the options open to them for supporting practical initiatives. DFID's Governance Department is producing guidance on longer-term assistance to the media. Provisionally entitled "The Media in Good Governance: Developing Free and Effective Media to serve the Interests of the Poor" this is expected to be published later in 2000.
