Communication for SDGs

Communication for SDGs

The importance of Communication for Sustainable Development is widely acknowledged worldwide says FAO.  It has the potential to achieve lasting, positive impacts on education, economic prosperity, social inclusion and environmental protection, taking us all forward to a new era of peace and sustainable development. 

Earlier powerful-elite groups totally controlled the communication channels like press, broadcasting, education, and bureaucracy but with advancement in communication resources no one can be denied access to and participation in communication processes.

The Agenda 2030 adopts specific targets on awareness raising, education & access to information and gives all of us a mandate to mobilize citizens & other stakeholders into action. These include: 

  • SDG Target 4.7 all learners acquiring the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development and global citizenship 
  • Targets 12.8 & 13.3 call for public awareness and education to promote sustainable consumption and production, and climate change 
  • Targets 16.6 & 16.10 require countries to establish accountable and transparent institutions, and to ensure public access to information.
