The Ethiopia media space has opened since April 2018 following the political reform in the country. This has enabled national and international CSOs, NGOs operating in the country to work on media development. As a result, it has created an opportunity to improve the capacity, knowledge and skills of media houses and practitioners to develop ethical, relevant and innovate news coverage for the public. This study analyses the organisational capacity issues and needs of Ethiopia media actors including non-media groups that however have a role to play in the democratisation of the media space. This study notes the importance and relevance of media associations and networks in supporting the professional needs of media workers and promoting media and free expression rights.
