The Development and Access to Information (DA2I) Report provides a basis for monitoring progress towards delivering information access for all, and how this is contributing to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The report supports IFLA’s wider advocacy in favour of building an understanding amongst decision makers of how important access to information is for development. Through this, we work to build support for libraries as partners for development.

The report is produced every two years, and consists of three key parts:

  • Monitoring progress on the different dimensions of access (connectivity, skills, equality and rights) using a range of well-recognised indicators
  • Providing concrete examples of how libraries are contributing to delivering on the SDGs
  • Sharing expert viewpoints and examples of how access to information, and libraries, drive success across the SDGs.

IFLA produces the report in partnership with the Technology and Social Change Group at the University of Washington.
