State of the Pacific Media Report

In 2013 the Australian Broadcasting Corporation International Development (ABCID) Pacific Media Assistance Scheme (PACMAS) supported a regional State of the Media report to inform program activities and provide a snapshot of Pacific media.

The 2013 report provided a useful resource not only for PACMAS program, but also for Pacific nations media organisations and associations, media practitioners, government communications departments, civil society organisations and NGOs. 
It has been ten years since that report, and ABCID has engaged the University of Adelaide to create up-to-date regional and national-level snapshots of the media landscape across the Pacific Islands region and in 12 Pacific Island countries.

The University of Adelaide research team consists of: 

  • Priestley Habru, Project Lead;
  • Claudine Aitorea Habru, Project Research Associate;
  • Jope Tarai, Project Research Associate;
  • William Waqavakatoga, Project Research Associate; and
  • Expert advisers from the across the Pacific Islands region.

Researchers from ABCID are also providing support.
