We define digital public goods as open source software, open data, open AI models, open standards and open content that adhere to privacy and other applicable best practices, do no harm and are of high relevance for attainment of the UN’s 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

This registry houses nominations that have either been nominated directly or have been pulled together from partnership databases, and digital public goods that adhere to the DPG Standard.

Digital Public Goods are labeled with a ‘DPG’ symbol beside their name. To see the full submission of a digital public good, click on the DPG symbol.
