7A. Digital technologies and the SDGs: Past successes and future directions
Description: Constant improvements in the availability and accessibility of digital technologies since the launch of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have played an essential role in how cities, communities, governments, non-governmental agencies, and private sector firms have been able to monitor and measure their progress toward meeting the SDGs. They also have made it easier to disseminate information across those entities, facilitating cooperation among them and allowing them to be more resilient in the face of challenges such as those that have been posed by the COVID pandemic. The success of digital technologies, however, also presents ethical challenges and sometimes leads to unintended consequences. Thus, concerning how they can be positively transformed to promote sustainable resilience has drawn attention. Submissions highlighting examples of the positive role digital technologies have been playing in achieving the SDGs as well as submissions which explore the directions they can take, are encouraged.
