Information and Communication Technologies for Development Working Group meeting


This is the meeting of ICT4 development Wotking Group.

The ICT4DEV WG was just re-initiated by the end of 2012. At that time it was clear that the group needs to consolidate the objectives and functioning of the Working Group. During a first WG meeting on 12 December, two broader fields in ICT for Development were distinguished:

  1. ICT and capacity development, including ICT supporting capacity development and capacity development in using ICT in different fields of development (e.g. ICT for education, health, rural development, ...);

  2. ICT for organizational management of the development sector, in particular for NGOs (e.g., ICT for communication and fund raising, ICT for human resource management, ...).

In a next meeting, on Tuesday 09/07 (2 pm in VUFO-NGO resource centre, the working group would like to identify more detailed topics for discussion and collaboration in these two broader fields and plan for concrete follow-up meetings and activities.

The result of this meeting should be a more detailed agenda for the ICT4DEV WG.

Agenda for the meeting:

  • Introduction to participants

  • Status of the WG: objectives and functioning

  • Roundtable on possible topics and activities

  • Conclusion on way forward
