Media is an essential tool to promote good governance and sustainable development. It makes sure everyone is heard, every concern is raised and all factors are considered and also holds decision-makers accountable. Media, when effectively positioned, exposes malpractices, publishes citizens’ needs and analyses the comprehensive impact of policies. The United Nations has also said that media freedom and right to information have direct relevance to the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly goal no. 16 peace, justice and strong institutions. This is a guiding principle of all of Media Action Nepal’s works.
