The Media and Information Literacy Assessment Framework provides UNESCO’s Member States with assessment tools to evaluate the extent to which their country is ready and able to provide citizens with the necessary Media and Information Literacy competencies.UNESCO, therefore, advocates that MIL be one of the preconditions of sustainable development and that literate use of information, media and ICT tools, including the Internet, will help to ensure that everyone enjoys the full benefits of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, particularly freedom of expression and access to information.UNESCO encourages its Member States to make every effort to ensure that all members of society are able to develop and benefit from MIL competencies. It is only by ensuring that all persons have the necessary competencies to take part in knowledge societies that we are, together, able to move the international development agenda forward towards a world where peace, freedom, and equality prevail.
