Knowledge Acquisition and Sharing
Knowledge is the key to social and economic development. Its acquisition and sharing has been going through dramatic changes because of rapidly emerging ICTs and the societal transformations that they generate.
UNESCO works with its partners to develop long-term strategies to efficiently harness the enormous potential of new communication and information processes and technologies for developing new approaches to knowledge acquisition and sharing. A major part of the work is to develop approaches to effectively integrate these strategies into forward looking and sustainable policy making. The ultimate goal is to develop knowledge societies that are people-centred, inclusive and development oriented.
