Shaping a sustainable digital future for all
We strive to place people at the heart of digital economies and societies worldwide.
The Digital for Development (D4D) Hub is a new form of global digital cooperation with the European Union (EU). We are aligning EU digital initiatives for an increased impact. The strategic multi-stakeholder platform promotes new international partnerships on digital transformation between the European Union and partner countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean and EU Eastern Neighborhood. Our joint mission is a human-centric approach to digital transformation: Facilitating multi-stakeholder dialogues, sharing digital expertise and fostering investments of diverse European and global partners. Only if we join forces through digital cooperation, we can take on this global challenge and untap digital opportunities.
Joining European forces for global digital cooperation
We strive for a digital transformation worldwide that is centered around people’s needs and fundamental rights. In the digital era, digital cooperation accelerates progress towards the Agenda 2030 through leaving no one behind by closing digital divides, including the gender digital divide.
Our vision is to shape a digital world with equal and sustainable opportunities for everyone.
All our partnerships and initiatives are guided by five principles
Facilitate partnerships that foster digital cooperation based on local demand and ownership.
Promote an inclusive digital transformation through a holistic approach involving multiple stakeholders: Public administrations, private sector, civil society and academia.
Promote the twin green and digital transitions, harnessing digital solutions for a green future while mitigating sustainability risks.
Foster inclusive digital economies and societies in which all citizens – notably women and young people – have equal opportunities to participate in the digital world. The human-centric approach puts people at the heart of the digital transformation – driven by people’s needs, fundamental rights and intersectional challenges to closing digital divides.
Safeguard data privacy, ethics and protection in the context of individuals’ rights, digital economies and institutions.
