Members join GFMD to get unfettered connections with their peers worldwide and to benefit from capacity-building opportunities provided or facilitated by GFMD.
GFMD works toward the goal that no knowledge or insights are lost across the worldwide MediaDev community and that experiences and lessons learned at all levels—from global to local, directly from the field as well as in academia—are collected and processed.
