The Atlantic Federation of African Press Agencies (FAAPA) is a professional platform bringing together some thirty news agencies and observing members, with the aim of promoting cooperation and exchanging experiences between African news agencies in all areas of common interest including information, training, digital and multimedia products.

It is one of the major professional groups, which tends to establish itself as a leader and “aggregator” of African news with a wealth of information and an abundance of editorial content and photos dispatched by the various African news agencies through their websites and the FAAPA portal.

This pan-African federation is called upon today to face the new challenges of the 21st century in a process of development and innovation in terms of strategic choices with a view to shine both in Africa and the worldwide.

The deep changes that are molding the world today, particularly with the onslaught of social networks and the proliferation of fake news, challenge all African news agencies and compel them, more than ever, to pool their efforts so that they can meet these major challenges together and fully play their role.

In this vein, African news agencies must ensure the strengthening of skills in fact-checking and the fight against fake news, and ensure compliance with the principles of professional and journalistic ethics which enshrine the commitment to serve the general interest, by promptly providing reliable, honest and diversified information.
