ICTs for Sustainable Development #ICT4SDG
ITU has been at the forefront of advances in information and communication technologies (ICT) for 150 years, driven by one unifying goal – to connect the world. ICTs already empower billions of individuals around the world, and will be of critical importance as the global community meets to charter a new path for sustainable development in the 21st century.
This week, the international community will agree on a set goals and targets for achieving a sustainable future through the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). All three pillars of sustainable development – economic development, social inclusion and environmental protection – are accelerated and strengthened through ICTs.
