Development in the digital age
Digital is transforming the world around us. It is changing the way we work, how we study, how we access services, and how we interact with each other. There is hardly an aspect of our lives that has not been transformed by digital technology.
The COVID-19 crisis, with its far-reaching socio-economic impact, has brought wide recognition of the value of connectivity and digital technologies. Countries with more developed digital infrastructures have been able to respond and recover more efficiently. Digital has helped millions of kids to stay in school, millions of people to keep their jobs, and governments to continue serving their citizens.
The pandemic has accelerated the transformation that was inevitable. Now, we are at a defining moment of setting the blueprint of what our lives and economies could be: greener, more inclusive, and equitable.
