In 2013, the International Press institute, or IPI, published the Reporter’s Guide to the Millennium Development Goals: Covering Development Commitments for 2015 and Beyond. The IPI’s “first-of-its-kind” manual is designed to help journalists cover development. It aims to assist journalists as they remind the public of government commitments to meet the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
The guide contains nearly 200 pages of advice on how to report effectively on development-related issues. These include “core” MDG themes – such as poverty, gender equality and education – and newly acknowledged roadblocks to progress, such as corruption, energy poverty and lack of government transparency. The guide was written by journalists with deep and diverse experience covering stories that affect communities across the globe.
