Welcome to our April Newsletter

Dear all,

Welcome to the April edition of the newsletter, with several discussions on sustainable development and the Agenda 2030, in particular, which is unfortunately going off track.

We will start with the traditional Spring Meetings of the World Bank Group. Timely discussion around the theme “Reshaping Development for a New Era”. We have compiled a selection of six events tackling the digitalization dimension, for a global overview.

The Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) held its Seventieth session of the Commission to address digital and green transformation. Don’t miss the related toolbox of instruments compiled in respect of digital transformation.

The UN also organized its World Data Forum, in China. Again very timely discussion on the need to have better data for sustainable development. Check out the Forum’s conclusions.

Related to the data governance conversation, there’s still time to register for the upcoming UNCTAD Intergovernmental Group of Experts on E-commerce and the Digital Economy, which will open its doors next week, from 10 to 12 May, under the theme “Make data work for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Register now!

Many thanks and enjoy the read!
