Frontier ICTs (Information and Communication Technologies) are recognized as an important means of achieving the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). However, the use, adoption, and adaptation of these technologies are not the same across countries.

Frontier ICTs such as Artificial intelligence (AI), Blockchain, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are expected to have a greater impact on sustainable development and are also recognized as an important source of concerns for socio-economic development (especially policymaking) in developing countries.

The main objective of the module is to provide relevant information, cases, policy recommendations, and international cooperation agenda(s) to enable national digital leaders to properly apply frontier ICTs in achieving the SDGs.
