Digitalization as a Driver of Inclusion

Digitalization as a Driver of Inclusion

November 8, 2023

Digitalization is transforming the world but also represents challenges. The pandemic highlighted digital weaknesses in LAC. Despite progress, a significant digital divide remains, worsening inequalities. To overcome this, there need to be investments beyond access and infrastructure.

UNDP´s efforts have accelerated the process of digital transformation in LAC, establishing that inclusive digitalization can serve as a powerful tool for empowerment and sustainable growth.

We need to continue to promote inclusive digitalization by prioritizing a people-centered approach, reducing digital inequalities, enhancing digital literacy, leveraging spillover effects, building upon existing foundations, and considering a whole-of-society approach.
