Add to Calendar September 16 1:00 pm September 16 2:00 pm America/New_York Accelerating National Digital Transformation Through Data: Introducing the Digital Development Compass

Social Impact, Tech for Social Good at UNGA77

The side-second event will focus on an innovative new tool from the UN Development Programme (UNDP) called the Digital Development Compass dashboard that GitHub’s Skills-Based Volunteering Program built. This is the first-of-its-kind tool that aggregates all publicly available data on countries’ digital development in one place to further enable digital transformation. The Digital Development Compass dashboard is now in its beta phase, and uses UNDP’s inclusive whole-of-society approach to assess countries’ digital transformation scores, identify gaps, and recommend improvements. This makes national progress on digital transformation easier and faster than ever.
