This media manual on responsible coverage of children's issues in the Caribbean was produced through a United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF)-sponsored project, implemented by the Caribbean Broadcasting Union (CBU) in partnership with the Association of Caribbean Media Workers (ACM). The guide, designed for use by print, broadcast, and electronic media in the region, underwent a detailed review by Caribbean media practitioners in a regional workshop in November 2015, supported by UNICEF Eastern Caribbean office, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) Commission Juvenile Justice Programme, and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Suriname. At that workshop, participants examined international treaties, regional media laws, and global good practices for covering children's issues in broadcast, print, and online media.
