This brief is written for those actors who plan, fund, produce and distribute reading materials in the South African reading ecosystem. This includes actors in government, publishers, authors and self-publishers, literacy NGOs, and donors (foundations, corporate, etc.) who support reading material production and distribution.
The brief extracts insights and recommendations from the larger National Reading Barometer project. The National Reading Barometer project seeks to spark debate and enable collective decision-making around shared priorities and collaborative action in support of literacy and reading.
