Tech as a Force for Good

Sustainable and Superior Future
Technology could be the deciding factor in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals and in delivering human security for all.

and Sustainable Future
At the mid-point of their 2030 target date, the world is not on track to meet the SDGs, with a shortfall in funding estimated at US$102-135 trillion, due to the many crises in the world.

As a result, the goals are moving further away despite the timeline to achieving them shortening, with a widening funding gap.
