An Innovative Global Partnership through Knowledge Sharing: the Role of Technological Innovations to Help Accelerate Poverty Reduction and Achieve Zero Hunger


In most developing countries, access to technologies is still weak in rural areas. This can lead to further exclusion of marginalized communities and an exacerbation of existing socio-economic inequalities. Moreover, not all communities are benefiting from emerging innovations and novel technologies. Technological innovations, including information and communication technologies (ICTs), are one of the main enablers that will accelerate the achievement of the SDGs, while leaving no one behind. New digital technologies and innovative uses of ICTs can potentially contribute to increasing productivity and wealth; generating new activities, products, and services; addressing information gaps; and improving livelihoods.
