Supporting Sustainable Development globally: libraries at the UN regional forums

(18 June 2019) In preparation for global meetings on the SDGs in July and September, IFLA has been active at the regional level. The message: that at all levels, and across the 2030 Agenda, libraries and access to information are indispensable for progress.

The process that leads to the High level Political Forum in July in New York each year passes through a series of meetings organised by each of the United Nations’ regional commissions.

These are opportunities to focus on progress – and challenges – at a continental level, and share the ideas that can help countries accelerate towards delivering the SDGs.

Libraries in all regions have much to contribute to success. IFLA has been happy to support them in showing this.
