References to Libraries in UN SDG Voluntary National Reviews
Over the last five years, 168 different countries have presented Voluntary National Reviews on their work to deliver the SDGs. The latest IFLA analysis highlights the example they offer of recognising libraries as partners for development.
New IFLA analysis has looked across the 199 available reports prepared by governments in the context of Voluntary National Reviews in the years 2016-2020. These set out the work governments and other stakeholders are doing to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The analysis looks at the number of reports mentioning libraries, and then how they do so, and in particular in association with which specific SDGs.
