|| The business case for supporting the SDGs is incredibly compelling. It has been reported that as much as $12 trillion and 380 million jobs could be generated by 2030 if the SDGs are placed at the heart of global economic strategies.
The urgency to attract the so-called ‘trillions’ is high on the agenda. Edge concepts and technologies such as green bonds, innovation labs, blockchain, solar currency, and impact finance are emerging as pointers to as yet uncharted territory.
These – and more – have crept into the SDG international community vocabulary and have the potential to change the nature of development and humanitarian work. Furthermore, they open new possibilities for addressing the pace of the implementation of the SDGs.
Mobilising funding for sustainable development can sometimes seem as complex as the work itself. Blockchain can address the tensions that prevent a multitude of sustainability, humanitarian and environmental initiatives from fulfilling their potential while accelerating our collective progress towards meeting the UN SDGs.
