Adopted by the participants of the Internet of Things Week 2017
on 9 June 2017 in Geneva
The Internet of Things (IoT) is emerging as a powerful enabler in many application domains, such as water and energy management, environmental monitoring, health, smart cities, smart industry and supply chain management. The IoT has the potential to address some of the most acute human, economic and environmental needs. It can also directly contribute to achieving the targets in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Accordingly, the emerging IoT paradigm has the potential to create an efficient, effective and secure ecosystem taking advantage of connected devices for managing the major global challenges faced by this, and future generations. In this context, at the 7th IoT Week, the IoT research and industry community, together with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and other stakeholders, took the opportunity to express their support for researching, developing and leveraging IoT technologies for sustainable development and for building a brighter future for our planet and its inhabitants.
