Bjørn H. Amland is Editor-in-Chief of Development Today, which he founded in 1991 with a group of Nordic journalists. The inspiration for Development Today grew out of Bjørn’s reporting from East Africa in the late 1980s when he experienced first-hand donors' efforts to control media coverage through grants to journalists travelling to Africa. He saw then the need for a publication on aid that was financially independent of the donors. Bjørn has worked in Norwegian print and television media - Dagbladet and Bergens Tidende, NTB and NRK Dagsrevyen - as well as for The Associated Press. Bjørn is the author of Bistand eller Børs? (Cappelen, 1992) and producer of the TV documentary "Falketyvene" for NRK
