Governing SDG Implementation Through Blockchain Technology

Activiteit: Professional or public presentationProfessional


Distributed-ledger (or ‘blockchain’) technologies play a key role in shaping the future of public administration. This submission looks at the limitations and possibilities of such a future based on the assumption that governments in developed and developing countries are embracing these new technologies to advance the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We are taking a close look at areas of public administration and governance which will most likely see an adoption of distributed-ledger based systems over the next two decades, such as digital identity (SDG 16), innovative climate finance (SDG 13) and social service provision (SDGs 1, 2, 3).
