New partnership with UN Technology Bank

The Pathways for Prosperity Commission has established a new collaboration with the United Nations Technology Bank for the Least Developed Countries.

The Commission is working with the UN Technology Bank to adapt its Digital Economy Kit to support the scale-up of technology in less developed nations, in pursuit of the Sustainable Development Goals. The Digital Economy kit, which has been tested with the governments of Mongolia and South Africa, and is currently being used and adapted in Ethiopia, aims to support governments to develop their own national digital strategies to ensure that everyone is included in our digital future.

Elizabeth Stuart, Executive Director of the Pathways for Prosperity Commission, said: “We are delighted about our new partnership with the UN Technology Bank. With the Bank and the Commission’s joint focus on inclusive growth, this is a wonderful opportunity to help get economies ready for the digital future for all.”
