Meeting in Paris ahead of the International Conference convened by France to Support the Sudanese Transition, Abdalla Hamdok, Prime Minister of Sudan, and the Organization’s Director-General Audrey Azoulay agreed to reinforce ongoing cooperation to support press freedom and media development, key pillars of the democratic transition underway in the country.
Press freedom is a cornerstone of any democratic society, and a key driver of the democratic transition in Sudan. UNESCO is committed to provide its expertise and guidance for a safe press environment. Working closely with Sudan since 2019, we have put together a Media Reform Roadmap to be implemented over the next 3 years, and we stand ready to step up our efforts.
Audrey Azoulay, UNESCO Director-General
