Digital Cooperation to leave no one behind: Implementing the Secretary-General’s Roadmap
4 May 2021 -  In June 2020, the United Nations Secretary-General launched his Roadmap for Digital Cooperation (https://undocs.org/en/A/74/821). Highlighting the challenges and opportunities of digital technologies, the Roadmap points out that mitigating the former and harnessing the latter will be a defining aspect of our ability to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). To that end, the Roadmap put forward concrete and people-centered proposals in key thematic areas such as achieving universal connectivity, digital inclusion, digital human rights and digital capacity-building.

The Office of the Secretary-General’s Envoy on Technology, in close collaboration with key partners of the Roadmap implementation, is organizing this side event to the STI Forum 2021 with the objective to update on and maintain momentum in the implementation of the Roadmap in the context of ongoing efforts towards achieving the SDGs.

The event will inform attendees on the progress of implementation of the Secretary-General's Roadmap for Digital Cooperation, and on the work of the United Nations on digital cooperation, particularly in responding to COVID-19, achieving the SDGs, and promoting digital inclusion.
