Digital Policy, Capacities & Inclusion

Digital transformation impacts every part of our lives - from the way we live to how we work and play.

Even as digital innovation continues to expand opportunities for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, there is an urgent need to look at how our rights are affected by emerging technologies and how to be empowered with tools to guard these rights.

UNESCO works to narrow the digital divide, strengthen digital governance and policies, build human and institutional capacities for digital transformation and lead reflections around pressing concerns related to the rapid technological development from a Human Rights and ethics perspective
