The world is shifting from analog to digital faster than ever before, further exposing the vast promise and peril of new technologies. While the digital era has brought society many benefits, we also face challenges such as growing digital divides, cyber threats, and human rights violations online.

Recognizing this, the United Nations Secretary-General launched his ‘Roadmap for Digital Cooperation’ (A/74/821) in June 2020. The Roadmap includes a set of recommended actions for the international community with the aim to ensure all people are ‘Connected, Respected, and Protected’ in the digital age. The Roadmap is the result of a multi-stakeholder, global consultation effort building on the recommendations made by the Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel on Digital Cooperation convened from July 2018 to June 2019.

With regards to Digital Capacity Building, the Roadmap specified the need for better collaboration and coordination on providing capacity building support. To this end, the roadmap specified two key actions:

  • The launch of a Multi-Stakeholder Network (MSN) to promote holistic, inclusive approaches to digital capacity development for sustainable development.

  • List The launch of a Joint Facility between ITU and UNDP,Item
