eForum Webinar: Libraries, The Lyon Declaration, and the Road to 2030

The e-forum is an online event is a joint effort by the Confederation of Open Access Repositories (COAR), the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) and Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to provide a forum for institutions and individuals to learn more about the Lyon Declaration, and to exchange ideas about how information centers and libraries can promote the adoption of access to information as part of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

This webinar will look how increased access to information can help achieve the United Nations’ new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It will explain how IFLA developed the Lyon Declaration on Access to Information to influence the SDGs, assess the resulting new post-2015 development framework to be endorsed by world leaders at the end of September in New York, and address the next steps that library and information professionals can take to ensure that we are included as partners in national sustainable development plans to reach goals and targets.
