Of the challenges faced by governments in 2021, none are more urgent than climate change. With NASA officially ranking 2020 as the hottest year on record and an increasing number of natural disasters linked to man-made climate change, governments are scrambling to plan for an uncertain future.
At the same time, the flow-on effects of the COVID 19 pandemic continue to place strain on public healthcare systems everywhere. With the ongoing surge response to new variants of the disease requiring a large injection of funding, governments are continuing to feel the strain.
Also on the rise is a general lack of trust in governments by their citizens. While some studies suggest trust in governments rose at the beginning of the pandemic, the dissemination of misinformation on a global scale has increased in the time since, spelling trouble for governments around the world.

Climate change and economic inequality were prominent discussion topics at the World Economic Forum's recent meeting. This blog will examine ways governments can leverage private sector-developed digital technologies to provide useful digital services to people worldwide. These digital tools can assist governments in better understanding their constituents and achieving more effective outcomes.
Despite this, with a few notable exceptions, most governments lag behind the private sector in harnessing the power of digital. The World Economic Forum (WEF) recently dubbed governments "digital dinosaurs" in a report.
Additionally, the World Economic Forum's 2019 Network Readiness Index indicates that the divide between growth in individual ICT use and government participation in the digital economy is widening.
