    Strategic foresight is the systematic assessment of Science Technology and Innovation (STI) in the long term and their potential impacts on society. These foresights provide input to technology strategies, policies, and plans by proposing pathways to reach a defined vision.

    This project will build a foresight for digital development in SDG 6. The foresight will be built by systematic mapping, monitoring and analysis, of foresight practices, stakeholders and outcomes. The report will discuss four digital developments in the context of SDG6:

    Artificial Intelligence,
    Big Data,
    Blockchain and
    Internet of Things (IoT).

    Deep dives for each SDG 6 targets will be performed while building the foresight.
