Digital Finance and the SDGs

“We live in an era of rapid and momentous change driven in large part by advances in information and communications technologies. These technologies have the power to help us achieve all the Sustainable Development Goals (…) They can deliver smart solutions to address climate change, hunger, poverty and other global challenges. They are tools for providing digital and mobile health care and wider access to education to those in rural areas. They can also help to empower women, generate efficiencies in industrial and agricultural production, and safeguard the environment.”

Antonio Gutteres, Secretary-General of the United Nations message to Broadband Commission for Sustainable Development
