AI holds tremendous potential for advancing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  AI, particularly generative AI, provides new opportunities to analyse data and trends at pace and scale to further knowledge, allocation of resources and action.  Applications to address the global challenges presented by the SDGs such as poverty and hunger, human health, climate change, biodiversity and ocean degradation are potentially limitless.  Upskilling and access to AI technology will be critical, but how can we avoid an AI divide between the West and the rest?

In recent years, increased expectations from investors, regulators, employees, and customers have put significant pressure on companies to increase their sustainability efforts. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are not just another sustainability framework, but the only universally agreed blueprint to turn meaningful ambition into transformational change. However, businesses report difficulties in integrating the SDGs into their core strategies and in understanding, reporting, and managing their impact on the Goals.

Water is essential for life and producing food, energy, minerals, and industrial goods. As planetary populations grow and a changing climate triggers floods, droughts, and other environmental extremes, access to clean water sources becomes increasingly competitive. Inadequate infrastructures, poor resource allocation, and outdated ecological restoration principles compound an already prescient problem.
