The course towards prosperity for everyone is not easy. Responding positively to technological change requires vision and strategy, and there are trade-offs that need to be carefully managed. The moment to capitalise on the opportunities that technology can bring for everyone is now. Failure to act means that the poorest and most marginalised people risk being left even further behind.
Through national Digital Dialogues– that involve diagnosing how far a country is already digitally prepared, and a series of meetings that bring a coalition of voices to the table – the Pathways Commission is already working to operationalise its recommendations outlined in our Charting Pathways for Inclusive Growth report.
To support this process, the Commission is drafting a Digital Ready kit which offers a framework for consideration for governments wanting to maximise opportunities in a digital age. This is a process that we welcome governments, policy makers, think tanks, private sector and tech entrepreneurs, and digitally-ready citizens to be involved in.
