Civil society and governments should promote laws that focus on access to information. It is important, however, for governments to not only invest in an appropriate legal framework for such laws, but also commit to their implementation. Activists and governments should take advantage of the momentum generated by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals SDGs to advocate and push for reforms at the national and global level.
