System Transformation:
How the ‘Networked Society’ Can Drive Inclusive Development

How can ICT innovations be leveraged to address the SDGs? How are ICTs transforming relationships of power? What are the most significant risks for vulnerable populations? How can SEEP members and other development actors more effectively promote solutions?

Information communication technologies (ICTs) are capable of reshaping economic and social ecosystems around the globe. Across a diverse set of fields, ICT provides real-time connections and communications which drive new functions, relationships and behaviors. These system features have the potential to empower people to engage with businesses and governments in more influential ways and transform market systems for the benefit of vulnerable populations.

The “networked society” can to help us address some of the most difficult challenges facing the world: food security and nutrition, resilience to climate and conflict shocks, financial inclusion and consumer protection. Digital solutions are considered essential to closing the gap on SDGs. This plenary aims to highlight the opportunities to address these challenges, the potential risks of technological advances for vulnerable groups, and barriers that can limit the impact of innovations.
