The 2022 report shed light on the relevance of access to information to the attainment of the SDG as well as countering disinformation and balancing the right to information with the right to privacy. It also focuses on national and regional good practices, including Small Island Developing States.“A Steady Path Forward” report captures these dimensions, presenting key findings from the 2022 UNESCO Survey on Public Access to Information and assessing progress in 123 participating countries and territories. It equips policymakers, civil society, academia and those interested in SDG issues with case studies and good practices, concentrating on reinforcing communities and public institutions with more access to information
