Presentation: IEC and SDGs October 2019 icons

All sustainable development goals rely on electricity. Electric power is the golden thread that alleviates poverty and hunger, increases access to healthcare, education, clean water and light after dark. It facilitates daily chores and allows women to contribute differently to local economies, increasing their status. IEC work is behind the scene but essential. It is technology focused and only few IEC Standards can be directly attributed to a single SDG. This presentation outlines where and how the IEC contributes to SDGs. Rather than text, it uses clear icons for faster communication.

IEC mini film: Cities

Tags :

Cities are giant systems with countless subsystems, all of whic depend on electric power and hardware to move people and things, collect data and exchange information. It is impossible to build an efficient urban infrastructure without reliable access to electricity and the many types of hardware that enable data collection. The IEC provides the majority of the International Standards needed to safely interconnect and automate much of the city infrastructure that generates or uses electricity and contains electronics.
