The Forum will provide an opportunity to discuss progress towards achieving the UN's Sustainable Development Goals in the region, and send key messages to the global gathering of ministers and experts in New York in July.

IFLA will be participating in a side-event kindly hosted by the library of the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, focusing on the need for meaningful access to information to achieve sustainable development, and the unique role of libraries in delivering this.
