Beneficiary description: 

The Chadian Media Observatory (ODEMET), was established by Chadian journalists with support from UNESCO, The European Union and the French Embassy in Chad. It is a self-regulatory body that publishes monthly reports allowing media personnel to monitor instances of malpractice in their profession. Ten years later, however, journalists have realised that this self-regulatory framework need to be strengthened through a review and the introduction of additional measures to render the ODEMET’s decisions enforceable.
Review and update the Code of Ethics to improve its effectiveness as an instrument for the self-regulation of the media and the protection of public law in Chad.
