Welcome to an online global consultation leading up to the High-level side event of the 74th UN General Assembly. This consultation will take place from 23 August– 20 September 2019. It will provide an opportunity for all those interested in digital technology and how it can be applied to address global challenges.
The High-level side event at the 74th UN General Assembly in September 2019 will focus on “Disrupting Development: harnessing the power of digital to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals”. We want to bring your voice to the event to help address some of the challenges and solutions! that digital technology has in delivering better results in the countries and communities in which UNDP works.
To take this discussion forward, we propose the following two questions:
1. What are your biggest challenges and concerns when adopting digital technologies to address current development issues?
2. What are the breakthrough digital ideas you think could exponentially advance sustainable development?
