Digital technology and the UN Sustainable Development Goals

The fastest growing economies are those that invest in human capital. Developing nations will have millions of knowledgeable workers, educated consumers, and empowered entrepreneurs, but only if leaders from across sectors partner to invest in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Digitalization is creating an unprecedented opportunity for development and innovation. Companies are harnessing this potential to grow and develop their business while leaving no one behind.
