This paper supports and complements "At the heart of change: the role of communication in sustainable development" by addressing the challenge of using communication more powerfully as an agent of change to establish faster, more sustainable development. It concludes with a call to action for international and national policy makers and leaders, asking them to: build more open, transparent information and communication systems and political cultures; treat information, communication and the media as public goods and invest accordingly; take a holistic view of communication processes and integrate communication into development planning and implementation; and invest in media development
