SDG DIGITAL INVESTMENT FRAMEWORK: A Whole-of-Government Approach to Investing in Digital Technologies to Achieve the SDGs

This paper calls for countries to take a whole of government approach to investing in digital technology. It illustrates how the methodology developed can be used to identify which technologies matter most to achieve the SDGs.

It highlights the use cases that have been implemented; the digital technology infrastructure and building blocks needed to deliver education, health and agricultural services; and where these can be shared across sectors to increase impact and reduce costs. Finally, it calls on governments and the private sector to work together to fund and deliver the digital solutions required to meet the goals.
