LIAQ is planning to continue in raising awareness about the SDG goals among the library and information community in Qatar and provide support to those who would like to seek more information about it.

 

similarly, Qatar National Library, through its leadership, is moving towards highlighting the SDGs goals relevant to Qatar in all its programs and workshops. Plans for such programs are under discussion to be finalized and implemented after the grand opening of the new QNL building which is anticipated to be in October this year.
