Information is a root solution

Information is a root solution for social and economic progress.

Eradicating information poverty improves governance, strengthens economies and advances social progress. Safe access to good information fights corruption, mitigates poverty, improves health and education outcomes, increases civic engagement, and raises awareness about global environmental issues. In times of humanitarian crisis and conflict, the right information at the right time saves lives.
