Internet Economy and Sustainable Development

11 November 2015 - A Main Session on Other in João Pessoa, Brazil

Agenda

We have from a visionary perspective “Global Trends to 2030: Can the EU meet the challenges ahead?” by European Strategy and Policy Analysis System & also “the Global Risks 2015” from the WEF.

The new post-2015 UN Development Agenda builds on the millennium development goals, eight anti- poverty targets that the world committed to achieving by 2015. While tremendous progress has been exhibited via MDGs, including the value of bringing together a diverse agenda by establishing goals and targets, there is further scope for improvement.  The UN Member States are in the process of finalizing Sustainable Development Goals (SDGS) as a part of the new Agenda to achieve the unfinished objectives, and to do so by 2030.

See the paper « the internet and Sustainable Development » by Constance Bommelaer, ISOC and the article « Development Digital Divide » by Carl Bildt, Sweden former foreign minister. Please also check « Transforming our World : the 2030 agenda for sustainable development »  from the UN, we have also “Ericsson & Earth Institute: Information Technology key to achieving new UN Sustainable Development Goals” as a good practice.
