The digital revolution is transforming everything about finance.
The UN Secretary-General’s Task Force on Digital Financing of the Sustainable Development Goals was created for one purpose: to harness the power of digital financing for the good of the planet and its citizens.
A Message from the Secretary-General

From the bottom of my heart I believe that even though technological advancements and sustainable development sometimes feel like they are moving in different directions – we cannot retreat from our duty to fight for a better world.
Co-Chair Achim Steiner (Administrator, United Nations Development Programme)
The digital revolution has transformed global financial systems. This transformation should be one that puts inclusive sustainable development at the center.
