Sustainable #netgov By Design

Environment & Human Rights

 

The objective of this session is to map out concrete steps to ensure how the principle of environmental sustainability as fundamental to the SDGS and, in turn, 

their basis in human rights law and norms, can be fully integrated into the design, manufacturing, implementation, and procurement of Internet-dependent technologies; from raw materials, to data storage and energy consumption, to disposal at the end of hardware lifecycles.
