- While digital public goods offer immense potential for development, they also present challenges that need to be addressed. Ensuring privacy, data security, and digital sovereignty are critical considerations for the sustainable and equitable use of these technologies.
- India's experience offers valuable lessons for other countries seeking to leverage digital public goods for development. By following India's blueprint, more countries can leapfrog the digital divide and accelerate their progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
