SDG 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructur - Mark Hasserman

SDG 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure

Join Mark Hassenkamp as he learns why it matters to build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialisation and foster innovation.

Economic growth, social development and climate action rely heavily on investment in resilient infrastructure as well as inclusive and sustainable industrialisation. Basic infrastructure like roads, sanitation, power, water resources and communication technologies remain scarce in many developing countries. Sustainable Development Goal 9 aims to "build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialisation and foster innovation by 2030". 

The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the urgent need for resilient infrastructure. For economic recovery we need to build back better, create jobs, reduce poverty and stimulate investment. The humanitarian crisis has accelerated the digitisation of businesses and services, as well as access to healthcare, education and essential goods and services online. It has never been more important to bridge the digital divide for the 3.6 billion across the world who remain offline.  

Join Mark as he learns about the importance of industry, innovation, and infrastructure, tutored by Aunnie Patton Power, founder of Intelligent Impact.
