Digital finance and mobile payments have and continue to hold the promise to improve the standard of living for many people in the developing world. Emerging technologies such as blockchain are swiftly entering the financial services sector and could resolve the trust issue more efficiently. However, the security of the mobile applications providing digital financial services needs a rigorous method to test for systemic vulnerabilities in a comprehensive manner. Being able to detect such vulnerabilities is no easy task for developers, regulators and DFS providers. ITU established recently a DFS Security Lab that can help regulators and service providers in auditing mobile payment applications. This session will provide a high level overview of the innovative applications of blockchain, cybersecurity concerns for regulators and related policy and regulatory challenges for the digital financial services sector.
This session will explore the role of digital transformation in accelerating the global progress towards net-zero emission in particular in least developed countries (LDCs), landlocked developing countries (LLDCs) and small islands developing countries (SIDS); an emphasis will be put on African countries’ experience. Artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, digital twin, blockchain are among the latest emerging technologies that are helping to improve accessibility to clean energy and achieve global sustainability. The session will place a special focus on the importance of achieving a sustainable digital transformation, which may include topics such as examining energy efficiency in the information communication technology sector, adopting a circular approach to digitalization, and achieving net-zero emission within the ICT sector itself.
Blockchain technology has the potential to transform all sectors and will bring greater trust and transparency in the world’s major industries. With the emergence oof Decentralized Identifiers (DID) and verifiable Credentials (VC) as core standards, decentralized identity can finally provide individuals the ability to securely manage their identities online. This is achievable when coupled with Distributed ledger technology (DLT). The combination of DID, VC and DLT technologies can provide adopters the ability to construct trust framework in which the individual can exercise control over their identity relation and transaction in a manner that is secure and private. The objective of this session is to provide an overview of blockchain and decentralized identity systems, applicable use cases and examples of DLT based frameworks for implementing various applications and strong decentralized on-line identity solutions.
With half of the world’s population living in cities, it is important to explore innovative approaches to achieve sustainable development for cities and rural communities. This session will explore approaches to designing smart cities and communities based on people-centred innovation, technology and applications.

Communities of all sizes can benefit from the use of emerging digital technology and collected data and generation of new information to improve the quality of life for the citizens and resources efficiency. In this session, participants will discuss:
Emerging Technology for people-centred smart cities and communities;
The global ecosystem of smart cities and communities, including technology, governance, and policies;
Challenges and opportunities for creating sustainable smart cities and communities in LDCs, LLDCs and SIDs.
