The Global Facility launches Digital Path: An E-Learning platform suitable for development context
Updated: Oct 5, 2021
The Global Facility, through the partnership with Microsoft, has developed a digital training platform, called Digital Path to serve beneficiaries at the global and local level. The platform was launched during UN General Assembly 2021 and will offer curated cutting-edge content provided by all partners of the Global Facility, to support MSMEs in their effort to go green and digitally transform; business development and strategy guidance; impact measurement and management; and how to go towards sustainable business practices and trade. With these efforts, the Global Facility seeks to support MSME resilience and to prepare them to comply with the demands for impact management and measurement.
