Examples of how libraries contribute to the United Nations 2030 Agenda

Libraries make an important contribution to development

They help people get the information they need to access economic opportunity, gender equality, quality education, improve their health or develop their communities. The inclusion of libraries and access to information in national and regional development plans is crucial to ensure libraries are able to continue performing this important mission. 

When doing advocacy at national, regional and global levels, it is key to show policy makers how libraries are already doing this through their programmes
, products and services. Therefore, this survey aims to gather examples that will be used for the advocacy work done by IFLA, its members and the broader library community related to the UN 2030 Agenda.

IFLA invites you to submit examples of library 
programmes, products or services that are clearly linked to one or more Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

Thank you in advance for your contribution!
