Many thanks all contributors from over 50 countries for sharing your valuable knowledge, experience and perspectives in UNDP and UNESCO's global online consultation on the impact of, and responses to disinformation. The contributions from over 150 UN colleagues and other experts in this field will help to inform and sharpen UNDP and UNESCO’s responses to disinformation going forward. If you missed the opportunity, you can still participate by submitting your written contribution to Niamh.email@example.com on or before 13th November 2020.
With much gratitude to our excellent team of moderators:
Based on the results of this e-discussion, we will continue to sharpen our thinking through focussed consultations with key private sector actors, donors, UN and civil society organisations. The UNDP offer on information pollution will be drafted by early 2021 for further review and final inputs.
Welcome to engagement room 2!
While there is much focus on how to stem disinformation flows online and offline, there may also be pre-existing factors which enable disinformation to spread more easily in different contexts. We want to identify those factors, social, political, and otherwise, that determine just what kind of foothold disinformation can get in a country, and understand how addressing those factors might build resilience and reduce the impact of disinformation. We also want to know how we can effectively monitor and anticipate waves of disinformation in order to address it preemptively.
In this room, we would like to explore the contextual enablers that we should be paying attention to, and hear about how you have effectively monitored disinformation.
As a reminder, disinformation is “false, manipulated or misleading content, created and spread unintentionally or intentionally, and which can cause potential harm to peace, human rights and sustainable development”.
