- Independent journalism is needed more than ever and forms the backbone of everything to do with democracy and sustainable development, says Parul Sharma, human rights lawyer and ambassador for Development Magazine. We are fast approaching 2030 – the year when the 17 global sustainability goals that the world's countries have agreed upon must be met. This means that we will soon have abolished all extreme poverty in the world, reduced inequality and injustice, promoted peace and justice and solved the climate crisis. And to achieve these goals, journalism about sustainable development is needed. But why is journalism such an important part of global development? Because fact-based information is a prerequisite for people from different parts of society to be able to understand and get involved in issues related to sustainable development, by, for example, making sustainable choices in life. Monitoring sustainable development also puts pressure on politicians to act on these issues and holds them accountable to their promises.
