The SDG Digital Day, an initiative by the International Telecommunication Union, seeks to prioritize data and digital technologies to stimulate increased efforts across all the 17 goals, ranging from poverty eradication and inequality reduction to universal access to clean water, sanitation, and affordable, clean energy for all individuals globally. SDG Digital Day is celebrated on 17 September every year.
In this context, CUTS International (Consumer Unity & Trust Society) organized a virtual two-hour moderated and interactive panel discussion on September 17th, 2023. The panel discussion focused on how Digital Public Infrastructure (DPI) can contribute to the attainment of SDGs and how India’s DPI can be reimagined globally.
Lorrayne Porciuncula, Executive Director, Datasphere Initiative joined this event as a speaker. During the session, participants discussed India’s experience with Digital Public Infrastructure and explored what lessons it could offer us to attain the SDGs.
