Building better societies through digital policy
Background paper for the CDEP Ministerial meeting
Building more equitable, connected, cohesive and sustainable societies is at the top
of policy agendas, but several challenges stand in the way of achieving this goal.
The report focuses on three key challenges policy makers face in the pursuit of better
societies: bridging digital divides, combatting harmful content online, and effectively
harnessing digital technologies to fight climate change and other environmental problems.
This report provides insights into key trends across OECD countries and partner economies,
and offers policy actions that can help decision makers tackle these three critical
challenges, together with better measurement. The report builds on previous work on
the topic and seeks to inform further debate and discussion on how to ensure that
today’s divides, biases and inequalities are not perpetuated into the future.
