Abstract:Access to information (A2I) is an issue that underpins development policies globally. We see this play out prominently in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN 2030 Agenda, where A2I is embedded in targets on ensuring public access to information, universal internet access, and international knowledge sharing, while also supporting targets related to improved health, education, economic, and governance outcomes. The Development and Access to Information Project will assess how A2I contributes to advancing the SDGs over the 15 years covered by this global agenda. This poster outlines our approach and shares early outputs from our research, including (1) a baseline of established indicators and (2) a conceptual framework created to monitor progress in the A2I landscape through 2030.
