Libraries Engaged in Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs)

Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) can be a great way for libraries to engage in discussions around the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and to be recognised for their contributions.

IFLA’s briefing on the process as a whole sets out why we have them, how they should be organised, and how they should look.

In addition, in order to provide additional support to members in countries undertaking VNRs in 2020, IFLA is launching a monthly series: ‘Libraries Engaged in VNRs’ to help you get involved.
