The UN considers blockchain as solution for environmental sustainability problems

The blockchain technology was discussed at the United Nations meeting, dedicated to the discussion of “sustainable development” problem.

According to the event programme, the New York meeting focused on how often public-private partnerships could use blockchain (among other tools) to achieve sustainable development goals. The event was organized by the diplomatic missions from Bangladesh and El Salvador, along with the World Organization of Governance and Competitiveness and New Jersey-based Saint Peter's University.

The discussion centered on a variety of areas related to inclusion, transparent government and fair justice systems. Specific calls to action include the goal to "provide legal identity for all, including birth registration (by 2030)", "develop effective, accountable and transparent institutions at all levels" and "substantially reduce corruption and bribery in all their forms".

The idea that the introduction of blockchain technology can lead to new solutions in finance and other areas is remarkable in itself. Besides that, it had been gaining momentum within the UN during the past year.
