Project ID 2210452041

For the 2022-2023 period, the SHS/NAI will focus on piloting the application of the 2021 Recommendation on the Ethics of AI, building implementation tools for the 2017 Declaration of Ethical Principles in relation to Climate Change, and advising and build capacities of Member States on understanding the implications of frontier technologies in the region. In terms of narrative and approach for resource mobilization, these complex issues will be brought in discussion with partners and donors from the angle of fundamental human rights and human dignity - including rights to privacy, access to information and knowledge, but also emerging areas as protection of personal data. Intersectoral collaboration will be sought with ED, SC, and CI, but also with other UN Agencies.
