Solution Conference

external event | member: GIZ

Digital technologies such as blockchains, sensors, intelligent QR codes and RFID chips are increasingly changing all sectors of the economy. They promise not only new levels of transparency and traceability for global supply chains, but also remarkable efficiency gains through automation. But how mature are the different technologies? Which projects already exist and how can digital technologies meaningfully improve global supply chain processes with regards to the UN Sustainable Development Goals?

To answer these and other questions the GIZ Blockchain Lab and the Sector Project Digital Development organise “Chain2Sustain – Supply Chains, Digital Technologies and Traceability”, a solution conference on November 29 at Malzfabrik Berlin. The event presents current applications of emerging digital technologies in global supply chains, with a focus on blockchains and surrounding technologies. Chain2Sustain revolves around so-called solution workshops in which actors from development cooperation, blockchain and digital startups, public institutions and corporations are actively working on issues related to global supply chains with the aim of finding suitable solutions.

Participants gain important insights into current and forthcoming changes in supply chains resulting from digital technologies, particularly blockchains. This allows participants to gain valuable inputs for their own projects. The workshops enable the creation of pilots, which will be subsequently implemented with various partners.
