In order to accelerate action and transformation for the delivery of SDGs, “A Comprehensive Framework on Appropriate Technology Choice for Sustainable Development” is proposed, innovating on the concept of Appropriate Technology,. The Framework is consisted of 10 guiding principles and designed to be applied in both developing and developed countries. If technologies are chosen based on the framework, we believe that the majority of SDGs can be attained. In the context of a post-pandemic society, transformation of societies based on the framework can enhance their security against various risks, including future pandemics and natural disasters.
