Source: International Federation of Library Associations and Institutes (IFLA)

Purpose of this toolkit:

This toolkit is primarily for librarians involved in national advocacy. It will also be of interest to librarians advocating at the local level, and organising activities to increase awareness of the UN 2030 Agenda in their own library.

This toolkit will help you to:

1. Understand the UN 2030 Agenda process, and IFLA’s advocacy;

2. Understand how the UN 2030 Agenda will be implemented at the national level;

3. Organise meetings with policymakers to demonstrate the contribution libraries and access to information make to national development, and across the SDGs [Sustainable Development Goals];

4. Monitor the UN 2030 Agenda and implementation of the SDGs;

5. Tell library users about the SDGs.
