The year 2016 is the first year of the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015. Press freedom and the right to information have a direct relevance to achieving Goal 16, specifically target 10, as it envisages the protection to the right to access information and journalists' safety. The SDGs will set the agenda for many policy decisions in the next 15 years. Freedom of information is closely linked to a culture of openness. Open and Inclusive societies protect press freedom and your right to know, which is crucial to sustainable development.
