World Development Information Day observed
25 October 2016 Current Affairs: World Development Information Day was observed on 24 October 2016. The day is annually observed to draw attention of world public opinion to development problems and the need to strengthen international cooperation to solve them.

The General Assembly in 1972 instituted World Development Information Day via resolution 3038 (XXVII). The Assembly decided that the date for the Day should coincide in principle with United Nations Day, 24 October, which was also the date of the adoption, in 1970, of the International Development Strategy for the Second United Nations Development Decade.

The Assembly felt that improving the dissemination of information and the mobilization of public opinion, particularly among young people, would lead to greater awareness of the problems of development, thus, promoting efforts in the sphere of international cooperation for development.
