What: Global Digital Development Forum (Virtual ICT4D Conference)
When: 06 May, 2020
Digital technologies and implementation methodologies offer the potential to accelerate change and increase social and economic development. Information and Communications Technology for Development (ICT4D) is no longer optional – the field of Digital Development has matured into a formal component of global humanitarian and development efforts.
Yet barriers to achieving ICT4D success remain. Policy and legal frameworks have not kept pace with innovation. Market failures limit access. Privacy and cybersecurity risks threaten marginalised and vulnerable populations. Overall, the international development community has not yet adapted to the new challenges presented by this digital age.
This virtual ICT4D conference will be a global transformative peer-learning digital development event specifically designed to include practitioners from low- and middle-income countries.
