Policy Guidelines for the Development and Promotion of Governmental Public Domain Information

These Guidelines were developed to advise Member States on policies for the development and promotion of public domain information, taking account of both national needs and international practices. Countries are intended to follow the guidelines in order to facilitate access to information in the public domain, with the ultimate aim of building up a general electronic repository of all information of a public nature relevant to UNESCO’s fields of competence -- education, science, culture and communication. This final version of the document is intended as a practical guide to assist in implementation of the relevant provisions of the Recommendation on Promotion and Use of Multilingualism and Universal Access to Cyberspace, adopted by the UNESCO General Conference in November 2003.
