The Middle East and North Africa leg of the United Nations' round of regional sustainable development fora, in preparation for the High Level Political Forum in July, took place last month in Beirut, Lebanon. We are grateful to Dr Imad Bachir, IFLA's representative, for this report.
The National Library of Lebanon, together with libraries, museums, heritage sites, and buildings throughout Beirut, sustained heavy damage caused by the explosion at the port of Beirut in August 2020.
Faced with major challenges around literacy and making best use of information and knowledge, the Arab world needs its libraries as much as ever. With them, development can work for everyone. IFLA attended the Arab Sustainable Development Forum (AFSD) 2018, underlining that political discussions had to be followed with practical action, and that in this, libraries were key players.
