Reportedly, the UN will use blockchain technology as part of Afghanistan’s redevelopment efforts. The plan is part of the City of the Watchdog program, which aims to modernize the country’s urban centers.
Blockchain technology hopes to bring transparency to the re-development process. Land Records management is an area where data sharing news will be used.
Blockchain technology is used in UN efforts in Afghanistan
According to a Sociable report in Technology News, the blockchain technology will be used by the UN Office of Communication and Information Technology (UN-OICT) in Afghanistan. The plan is to use this technology to help the government protect its land records in a transparent and secure way.
According to UN Secretary-General’s Spokesman Stefan Dujarric, the UN Department of Urban Development, UN Habitat, will work with the Afghan government as its “city for all.”
The program says the three countries’ components are needed for peace and further development in the country’s urban centers. These include effective land management, strategic urban planning and improved municipal finance and governance.
