Digital technologies can enable breakthrough innovations in many areas, including humanitarian work and development aid. Not surprisingly, developing countries have long been a preferred test-bed for emerging digital solutions.
Technologies like blockchain can indeed be a driver of social innovation in areas such as healthcare, financial participation, energy, climate and environment, philanthropy and charity, democracy, agriculture or land ownership. Moreover, blockchain has the potential to accelerate progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
Ideally, digitalisation offers developing countries the opportunity to catch up more quickly with highly developed economies (leapfrogging). However, digital transformation can also widen the digital divide and put pressure on lower-income economies.
In this talk, Martin Breitsprecher will give an overview of current blockchain use cases in the development cooperation sector. He will look at key issues, opportunities and risks of this technology and discuss the potential of harnessing blockchain for sustainable development.
The presentation will be held in English as a live online webinar. The participation is free of charge.
