6 remarkable features of the new United Nations open source initiative


The United Nations wants to make technology, software, and intellectual property available to everyone, including developing countries. Open source and free software are great tools to achieve this goal since open source is all about empowering people and global collaboration while protecting the personal data and privacy of users. So, the United Nations and the open-source community share the same values.

Open source makes it possible for underdeveloped countries and regions to foster local companies and expertise by building on top of existing open-source software—standing on the shoulders of giants.

This new open-source strategy and policy is developed by the United Nations Technology Innovation Labs (UNTIL).
