IFLA was represented at the Digital Rights and Inclusion Forum, held in Nairobi, Kenya, on 12-14 April, joining with stakeholders from across Africa to underline how libraries can deliver equity in the online world. We are grateful to Damilare Oyedele for the below report.
Information is a key condition for development, in particular the face of crises. As an IFLA side-event at the African Regional Forum for Sustainable Development underlined, this makes libraries – if properly supported – into key players in providing a response to the challenges Africa faces today.
A short report on recent IFLA activities in Nairobi, Kenya. Earlier this month IFLA representatives traveled to Kenya to participate in a two-day conference to discuss how to come together to encourage reading in the digital age.
