UN Promotes Technological Developments for SDGs

The ITU announced that over half the world is using the internet, following the UN General Assembly’s adoption of a resolution on ‘Impact of rapid technological change on the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and targets’ (A/RES/73/17). Several events took place in November 2018 on technology’s contribution to the SDGs, including the 13th Internet Governance Forum on the theme ‘Internet of Trust,’ the 2018 Web Summit, and a high-level briefing on frontier technologies for sustainable development.
