    UNESCO seeks to promote world peace; harmony and understanding among nations by helping Member States find answers to the key problems that beset their societies. UNESCO also seeks to advise and assist Member States in the development of their communication infrastructures in line with the basic tenets of Free Flow of Information. UNESCO's communication and information programme in the Caribbean strives to foster equitable access to information and knowledge for development and to promote freedom of expression and development of communication. Its emphasis is to encourage the free flow of ideas, in furtherance of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, of which press freedoms are an integral part.

    Another of UNESCO’s programme is geared toward placing Culture at the centre of development. The development of cultural industries plays a major role in our overall commitment to poverty alleviation.
