UNDP takes next step in harnessing power of digital with online global dialogue

Emerging technologies have the potential to accelerate sustainable development and transform the lives of millions of poor and vulnerable people. However, when it comes to adopting digital technologies at scale for the benefit of these populations, the challenges and concerns are big.


To spearhead the conversation on the breakthrough digital ideas that could exponentially help in fulfilling the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, UNDP today launched an online global dialogue. This interactive dialogue provides an opportunity for UNDP’s donors, development partners, stakeholders, researchers and citizens of the world interested in digital technology, to present ideas on how technology can be applied to provide solutions to current development challenges in their countries and be replicated globally.
