Ninth Goal: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure

Ninth Goal:  Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure




Investments in infrastructure – transport, irrigation, energy and information and communication technology – are crucial to achieving sustainable development and empowering communities in many countries. It has long been recognized that growth in productivity and incomes, and improvements in health and education outcomes require investment in infrastructure.
Inclusive and sustainable industrial development is the primary source of income generation, allows for rapid and sustained increases in living standards for all people, and provides the technological solutions to environmentally sound industrialization.
In addition to government funding and official development provision; private sector funding is being supported in aid of countries that are in need of financial, technological and technical support.
