UNESCO’s Information For All Programme (IFAP) provides a platform for stakeholders around the world to come together, discuss policy, and recommend action in the area of access to information and knowledge.

The IFAP Bureau consists of six Member States who meet twice a year to carry out functions including:

  • reviewing and approving projects to be supported by IFAP special funds
  • making recommendations to the Intergovernmental Council
  • ensuring resolutions of the Council are effectively carried out

IFLA works closely with IFAP on a number of activities, among them the update to the IFLA-UNESCO Public Library Manifesto.
