I think you make a very important point when you say “Sustainable Development is best achieved by having access to information, sharing and networking”. Indeed, it could be asserted that “Sustainable Development can only achieved by having access to information, sharing and networking”.
Over the past 10-20 years we are entering an unprecedented and exciting era with the technological potential to connect all stakeholders working for international development and the SDGs. Communities of practice like this one [sdgs-impact-access-information-societies] will have an increasing role and will become ever more capable of not only giving more and more people a voice, but also to harness these voices in ways that can help inform policy and practice.
This CoP – [sdgs-impact-access-information-societies] – is one of over 700 Communities of Practice supported by the Dgroups Foundation, a partnership of 23 international development organisations (including FAO, DFID and SDC) with a common vision: A world where every person is able to contribute to dialogue and decision-making for international development and social justice. We are currently expanding and we welcome new partners: www.dgroups.info
