Informed Citizens, Societies and Governments for Sustainable and Resilient Recovery

Side event at the UN Asia Pacific Forum on Sustainable Development 2021


23 March 2021



IFLA will be represented by Stephen Wyber, Manager, Policy and Advocacy


Governments, communities and individuals across the Asia-Pacific region will have many tough decisions to make if we are to achieve sustainable and resilient recovery from COVID-19. A precondition for doing this well will be to be well-informed. 

This side event, held at the time of the 8th Asia-Pacific Forum for Sustainable Development, will draw on experience from civil society, government and the research field to explore the case for a holistic approach to promoting meaningful and equitable access to information, and the challenges to overcome. It will look, in particular, at the role that libraries of all types can play in helping the region, and the world, to build back better.

The event will take place 8-15am - 9:45am Bangkok time (see what time this is for you).
