STI Forum Side Event- Digitalization to Achieve the SDGs: promoting more effective and coherent UN support through mapping and country level initiatives

UN DESA and Office of Envoy on Technology



Background Information on Side Event 

We would like to showcase the mapping of digital-related initiatives across the UN System, which was conducted from 30 November 2021 to 31 January 2022. Accordingly, we would like to share that we have received 489 inputs from 39 UN entities during the mapping exercise.

To highlight the outcomes and initiatives of this mapping, the Office of the Tech Envoy and DESA are organizing an STI Side Event aiming to raise stakeholder awareness on how digital technologies can boost the process to achieve SDGs and the significance of coordination to implement the Roadmap for Digital Cooperation. Through presentations by UN Agencies and UN country presence, the event will also explore how digitalization can help facilitate the achievement of socio-economic and environmental, sustainable development, with a specific focus on country-level needs.
