We are committed to helping build a positive digital future.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) promise to “transform our world” by 2030. They aim to reduce poverty, increase economic outcomes, ensure sustainability, and create opportunities to improve people’s lives.
That’s an ambitious promise of a better world – and one we are collectively far from achieving.
But there’s still time.
Digital technology is one of the critical tools that can help drive the transformation the world needs right now and take us closer to achieving the vision of the SDGs.
Today, the global population is increasingly embracing digital solutions. They use digital apps access to services; buy food and basic goods through digital payment solutions; and benefit from government digital systems that efficiently run hospitals, water and power networks, and public transport.
At the same time, there remains a significant proportion of people – often those living in some of the poorest countries – who do not have access to the digital tools that for others are just a basic part of life.
Our vision is of a world where data and technology serve people, society, and the planet.
Our mission is to connect governments, funders, and development actors with the essential insights, knowledge, and tools needed to advance positive, sustainable and inclusive digital transformation.
