Mapping the world's most pressing problems

The 50 Breakthroughs report serves as the technology complement to the SDGs. Grounded in rigorous analysis of each of the issues brought forward by the 2017 UN SDGs, the report identifies the 50 most critical technologies required to eradicate global poverty.

At its core, the 50 Breakthroughs is a call-to-action to the global development ecosystem to prioritize talent, resources and funding towards technologies that matter.
