This chapter discusses the outcomes from a stakeholders' workshop organised by the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, University of Nairobi, with a view to discussing not only the various challenges faced by the media in the region, but also come up with practical solutions to the problems. The workshop participants included members of the academia (trainers) and those from the media fraternity (journalists and managers) in the region. This chapter is, therefore, the product of presentations and group discussions from a three-day workshop held between the 9th and the 11th of April 2008 on community, and citizen/web journalism). Trainers and researchers in media and journalism, as well as journalists from the nongovernmental organisations (NGOs) were also in attendance. The chapter thus forms an important bridge between conceptual or theoretical reflections and practical considerations on the media in the region.
