CODES is an open multi-stakeholder community of change makers and practitioners that seek to collaborate in accelerating a digital planet for sustainability.
It is part of the broader follow-up to the Secretary-General’s Roadmap on Digital Cooperation. It will be co-championed by UNEP, UNDP, the International Science Council, the German Environment Agency, the Kenyan Ministry of Environment and Forestry, Future Earth, and Sustainability in the Digital Age.
The CODES community will use these discussion forums to identify step-wise priorities and measurable targets, share lessons learned, crowd source new ideas, and help surface innovative initiatives for sustainable digital transformations. We will hold time-bound discussions in these groups and seek to achieve rough consensus on key decisions through bottom-up and inclusive engagement.
