The Push to Have Digital Technologies Included in the Sustainable Development Goals

Abstract: 
This year marks an historic turning point for development policy. One of the most dramatic changes since adoption of the MDGs has been the global spread of information and communication technologies (ICTs), especially mobile phones and the Internet. The ITU and UNESCO commission argued that a “systematic approach to integrating ICT as a means of implementation is lacking” and that “there is considerable scope to integrate the unique role of ICT more fully into the current proposal for SDGs."
