Global connectivity is crucial for ensuring "full citizen engagement" and achieving the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

That’s according to David Nabarro, UN Special Adviser on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Mr Nabarro spoke to Paul Conneally from the International Telecommunication Union or ITU after addressing a technology conference in early June.
