Building a Media-literate Public

Enhancing media’s role in development demands building a media literate public that will effectively comprehend and utilize media content and engage media to promote professionalism and good ethics. A media literate public can contribute to greater civil society participation in development and contribute towards the establishment of more robust media organizations and the functioning of a healthy democracy. What are new approaches that can contribute towards media literacy? Is media paying lip service to media literacy? What more can be done?
