Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialisation and foster innovation
Infrastructure is all about easy movement and connectivity. It’s the roads, rails and airports we need to trade goods, supply food to shops and medicines to clinics. It’s the water, electricity and internet that’s crucial to our daily lives.
When it works you barely notice it’s there – when it doesn’t, life gets a lot tougher. Hitting this goal would help developing countries end extreme poverty by boosting trade, from small farmers who could get produce to markets and information on best prices, to African companies who could start trading within the continent as well as overseas.
Investing in technology and innovation would unlock the unlimited knowledge and connective potential of the internet for everyone, and create more jobs in this sector for developing countries.
