2030Vision

2030Vision - partnering together to scale technologies for the global goals 

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development sets out a 17 Global Goals (SDGs) to facilitate equal, sustainable and inclusive growth across the world, while promoting peace. Yet, progress towards delivering many of these Goals is far off track, and in some areas, progress is going backwards.

Unlocking the potential opportunity for technology to help make the Global Goals a reality over the next 10 years requires a system level change in priorities, and significant challenges to be overcome. We need to embrace innovation, not only in the development of new technologies, but also in how we do things. This includes new business models (platforms and ecosystems, marketplaces, digital commons), public and private collaborations, and incentives to ensure solutions are applied to solving our greatest social and environmental problems.

There is a huge untapped opportunity, therefore, to harness new technologies to accelerate progress on the Global Goals, both broadening and deepening current action. 2030Vision Platform will provide a focal point for the mobilisation of a more concerted and cooperative effort to apply advanced technologies to achieve the UN Global Goals. Building on the call from the UN High Level Plan on Digital Cooperation for a multi-stakeholder approach that brings together technology companies, government, civil society and international organisations leaders to collaborate on the responsible deployment of new technologies to deliver positive impact.

2030Vision is a newly formed integration merging the 2030Vision Partnership Initiative launched by Arm in December 2017 with the Frontier 2030 initiative launched by the World Economic Forum in January 2020. Thenew initiative, 2030Vision is co-owned and developed with founding partners and co-chaired by Simon Segars, CEO, Arm and Achim Steiner, Administrator, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

2030Vision aims to be the global public-private platform that puts the expertise and resources of the tech sector in service of accelerating the achievement of the Global Goals. The platform mobilizes technology companies, government, civil society and international organisation leaders to harness emerging technologies and at scale to accelerate action to achieve the Global Goals within the next decade. 

The platform seeks to form 4IR technology partnerships with three key objectives in mind: 


  • Help countries identify and match technologies that address their specific Global Goals implementation priorities; 

  • Catalyse further collaboration to unlock barriers to breakthrough technology innovations for the Global Goals; 

  • Proactively convene key stakeholders to cultivate an enabling environment for 4IR innovations to drive positive outcomes. 

The World Economic Forum hosts and facilitates 2030Vision and delivers programmes and projects together with seconded staff, experts and advisors from partner organisations.

2030Vision is a newly formed integration merging the 2030Vision Partnership Initiative launched by Arm in December 2017 with the Frontier 2030 initiative launched by the World Economic Forum in January 2020. Moving forward the initiative will be known as 2030Vision and be co-owned and developed with founding partners and co-chaired by Simon Segars, CEO, Arm and Achim Steiner, Administrator, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

This new platform will serve, on one hand, as a global node and facilitator of networks of providers and users of technology solutions for sustainable development; on the other, it will advance intentional curated efforts, partnership building, government capacity development and finance to fast track new technology solutions for the Global Goals.

The platform seeks to form 4IR technology partnerships with three key objectives in mind:

to help countries identify and apply technologies that address their specific SDG implementation priorities; to catalyse further investment in breakthrough technology innovations for the SDGs; to unlock barriers to the scaling of solutions.
