Governments have the critical responsibility to pursue policies and measures to build resilience and assist those most affected by shocks in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They must find ways to anticipate disasters and shocks and lower their impact. Digital technologies are increasingly being used by governments to improve the response to disasters and other shocks to improve the resilience of communities. In the information society, it is important to move onwards to an approach where the concerns of building resilience, sustainable development and leaving no one behind are embedded in e-government development.

E-government for leaving no one behind

Addressing the needs of the poorest and vulnerable groups is one of the building blocks of resilient and sustainable societies. Given today’s complexities – from humanitarian crises and migration patterns to the challenges of the urban and rural poor – technologies offer an opportunity to leave no one behind by extending the reach and access of information and services to those who need them the most.
