Storyline

According to a new UN Trade and Development’s report while digitalization drives global economic growth and offers unique opportunities for developing countries, its environmental repercussions are becoming increasingly severe.

Briefing journalists today (10 Jul) about the Digital Economy Report 2024, UN Spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric said, “Our friends at UN trade and Development emphasize the pressing need to address the environmental costs of rapid digital transformation. Key concerns include the depletion of finite raw materials for digital and low-carbon technologies, escalating water and energy consumption and the growing issue of digitalization-related waste.”

The report, launched today, sheds light on the significant environmental impact of the global digital sector and the disproportionate burden developing countries bear.

It also says that developing countries remain unevenly affected both economically and ecologically due to existing digital and development divides, but they have the potential to leverage this digital shift to foster development.
