This session will focus on a report that presents the results of the network analysis of GFMD members. This analysis specifically studied the communication channels used and the quality of relationships among members. The quality of relationships was assessed using measures of social capital. The report also provides recommendations for strengthening the network. The contents of this report provide a quantitative baseline of the media development sector as of 2014-2015. Future network studies can track progress toward enhanced network strength overtime.
