Around the world, CGI Commitments to Action are creating new approaches for cleaner air and water, protecting habitats and species, and developing solutions to reverse climate change.
The African Media Development Initiative (AMDI)
In 2005, the BBC World Service Trust, in partnership with Internews, Reuters Foundation, Article 19, Media Institute of Southern Africa, PANOS, West African Media Foundation, and Rhodes University School of Journalism committed to developing the African Media Development Initiative, which will seek to increase the resources, duration and scale of media in Africa.
Since making the commitment they have formed partnerships with universities in Africa including Ahmadu Bello University (Nigeria), and the University of Dar es Salaam (Tanzania), and have secured funding for preparatory research and mapping phase from UK's Department for International Development and the Gates Foundation.
In 2013, carbon dioxide emissions comprised 82 percent of all U.S. greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere from human activities. The rising concern for our environment and the sustainability of the planet has led to more focused efforts on reversing the effects of climate change.
