Development and Access to Information (DA2I) report

This article is part of an ongoing series of articles on KM in international development.

Development and Access to Information (DA2I) is the first of a series of annual reports that will monitor the progress countries are making towards fulfilling their commitment to promote meaningful access to information as part of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Other recent related initiatives include the Agenda Knowledge for Development and the review of knowledge management in the United Nations system.

DA2I will be launched annually, at the time of the United Nations High Level Political Forum (UN HLPF). The launch of the first edition took place at The New York Public Library on Monday 17 July 2017.

DA2I underlines the contribution that information access, particularly through libraries, makes to promoting more socially and economically inclusive societies. It is designed for UN member states, intergovernmental organizations, funders, civil society, other stakeholders working in development, and the library community itself.

DA2I is a joint project between the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) and the Technology & Social Change Group (TASCHA) at the University of Washington Information School.
