The Blockchain Alliance International (BAI) is a non-governmental organization that collaborates with NGOs, the private sector, academia, governments and multilateral institutions with the objective of rallying technological and informational support to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The forthcoming Blockchain Forum is an initiative by BAI and its partners to discuss the topic of innovative ICT technologies in support of the SDGs and to learn from innovators, scientists, and decision makers regarding development goals and challenges, results, and solutions in entrepreneurship, technology, and public policy; examine particular cases; share expertise, and leverage blockchain to transform the planet by 2030.
Originally designed for applications in digital currency, blockchain’s distributed ledger technology fosters transparency and accountability in the data that global businesses, governments, and humanitarian efforts rely on. Furthermore, the technology also reduces the costs and waiting time for transactions, which enables every investment in people and our planet to save lives, create economic opportunities, and preserve our environment.
Our need to track progress, improve transparency, and generate innovate solutions to achieve humanity’s greatest goals requires us to reliably collect, store, and transmit the data with which tell our story. The Blockchain Forum will provide direction at the intersection of social enterprise and technology in order to catalyze solutions for the planet’s shared challenges.
We are looking forward to your active participation and welcoming you to our event.
