Digital technologies and innovation

Digital technologies and innovation renew the options for access to essential services, open up societies to new knowledge and make the economy more collaborative. These are all opportunities to speed up development paths and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

However, digital technologies and innovation also pose a challenge. It involves providing the most effective support possible to the dynamics already initiated by our partners and promoting a wide and equitable dissemination of new models. In the many projects we finance, we thereby uphold an open, inclusive and responsible vision of digital innovation.
