Since its launch in March 2021 in response to the UN Secretary-General’s Roadmap for Digital Cooperation, the international multi-stakeholder alliance, the Coalition for Digital Environmental Sustainability (CODES), has grown into a community of over 1,000 individuals and organizations. Members are working together to reorient and prioritize the application of digital technologies to meet the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and to achieve other global environmental goals. The ISC is a co-champion of CODES, and is jointly responsible for acting as its secretariat and coordinating the delivery of the strategic objectives and key outputs.
The draft Action Plan was presented to UN member states at the UN Environment Assembly in March 2022, and launched at the Stockholm +50 conference on 2–3 June 2022. Early impact and lessons learnt will be presented at the UN Summit of the Future in 2023.
