Goal 9 - Industy, Innovation and Infrastructure
#Goal9 Industry, Innovation, Infrastructure.
Aspects of the prevailing global economic environment have not been conducive to rapid progress on Sustainable Development Goal 9.
While financing for economic infrastructure has increased in developing countries and impressive progress has been made in mobile connectivity, countries that are lagging behind, such as least developed countries, face serious challenges in doubling the manufacturing industry’s share of GDP by 2030, and investment in scientific research and innovation remains below the global average.
