Abstract: The United Nations General Assembly approved the 2030 Development Agenda proposal, which included 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 related targets. Many countries have committed to achieving these SDGs by 2030. Through access to resources and information, connectivity, and research activities, technology, and innovation policies are important in achieving the SDGs. However, how the 2030 development agenda can harness technologies and innovations to achieve the SDGs by 2030 remains a challenge. We identified eight factors related to technology and innovation that should be considered for SDG success by 2030. We looked at how the identified factors interacted and linked them to the SDGs. The modified total interpretive structural modelling (m-TISM) technique is used to develop a hierarchical model and define the common interconnections between the identified technological factors. The implications of the findings are interpreted and discussed.

Keywords: sustainable development; technology management; strategic alliances; TISM; policy.
