The world is shifting from analog to digital faster than ever before, further exposing us to the vast promise and peril of new technologies. While the digital era has brought society many incredible benefits, we also face many challenges such as growing digital divides, cyber threats, and human rights violations online.
The Covid-19 pandemic has underscored our reliance on digital technologies and is an urgent call to address how we can use and safeguard digital technologies to help all people.
This Roadmap lays out a roadmap in which all stakeholders play a role in advancing a safer, more equitable digital world, one which will lead to a brighter and more prosperous future for all.
The UN Secretary-General’s Roadmap for Digital Cooperation provides a vision and steerage for a digitally interdependent world. It lays out actions for the global community to CONNECT, RESPECT, and PROTECT people in the digital age.
UNICRI has contributed to the preparation of the Roadmap through its Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics.
