United Nations Conference on Trade and Development  
Policy Initiative: Sustainable Digital Economy
3. May 2019

Digital technologies are already producing an impact on many areas of social and economic life, including employment opportunities. The deployment of existing and emerging technologies offers potential to support the achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, particularly in areas such as health, education, agriculture, new enterprise development, gender equality and environmental sustainability. However, rapid technological change also creates concerns and challenges, since new technologies can also increase inequalities. Building digital competencies can help countries maximize technologies in societies.
