Progress towards every single sustainable development goal (SDG) of Agenda 2030 also hinges on the effective deployment of digital technologies. In Global Governance Spotlight 4|2019, Anita Gurumurthy and Nandini Chami from IT for Change explain the importance of so-called digital ecosystems to catalyse inclusive sustainable development. In order to be able to use the opportunities offered by digitization for the common good, the authors call for, inter alia, a binding international treaty on data and better development financing for digital public goods.
