Access to information is crucial for everyone, and is a prerequisite for development programmes across all sectors and at all levels. To safeguard the success of the post-2015 development agenda, the post-2015 process must focus on ensuring that governments, civil society, communities, and individuals have the right to the essential information needed to solve problems and make better decisions and effective access to that information.
In December 2013 IFLA launched a joint statement on the role access to information can play in the post-2015 development framework. The statement, prepared in association with Article 19, Development Initiatives, CIVICUS and Beyond Access, is intended to start a discussion on including access to information as a central pillar of the framework, and outlines possible metrics to measure progress.
The Statement is also available in French, Spanish, Arabic, Portuguese and Bengali. Please mail firstname.lastname@example.org .:. Sustainable Development Knowledge Platform
