In an opinion column published by América Futura from El País, Philipp Schönrock, executive director of Cepei, warned of the need to give a new drive to the data revolution to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. He stated, “If we manage to navigate this intersection between technology and sustainability in an effective and ethical way, combining robust data ecosystems, emerging technologies, and inclusive partnerships, we could pave the way towards a greener and more sustainable future for Latin America and the Caribbean.”

He also shared the region’s countries’ role in the leadership of global scenarios, which will be an opportunity to move from agreements to transformative actions, especially to address issues related to climate change and gender.
