UN High Level Panel on Digital Cooperation Launches a New Tech Report

By the United Nations

Following nine months of consultations with governments, the private sector, civil society, international organisations, academia and technical communities worldwide, the Panel’s report paints a picture of the interconnected nature of digital technology and policy impacts, and makes 5 recommendations for shaping our common digital future.

The report explores the ways that digital technology can help achieve the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development; how digital tech relates to human rights and security; and models for digital cooperation between different parts of society. Several recommendations are contained within the report, based on the three main areas.
