During the International Advocacy Programme Global Convening, held in New York on 28-29 June 2018, IFLA offered a presentation about expected events in the coming year at the United Nations.

This covered both regular events – notably the annual High Level Political Forum and regional sustainable development forums, and voluntary national reviews, but also the special focus on education, employment, equality and access to information, and reviews of the whole 2030 Agenda and data framework.

The presentation sets out why these matter for libraries, and makes recommendations for engagement.
