Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation for all
Investment in infrastructure and innovation are crucial to economic growth and development. More than half of the world's population now lives in cities, so mass transportation and renewable energy are becoming increasingly important, as are the growth of new industries and information and communication technologies.
Through technological progress, this goal aims to promote sustainable development in the industrial field, finding lasting solutions to economic and environmental challenges, such as providing new jobs. It also intends to promote energy efficiency, innovation and entrepreneurship, including through investment in scientific research, and to ensure equitable access to information and knowledge, bridging existing digital divides.
