The annual ICT4D Conference brings together public, private and civil society organizations from across the humanitarian and international development community. Participants share how they’ve used innovations in technology to increase the impact of their work. Highly interactive and hands-on, the conference attracts a diverse audience of technical advisors, executives, and others who offer a range of practical insights on applying technology to development challenges.
This Year’s Focus: Sustainable Development Goals
Following the ratification of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, the 2016 ICT4D conference in Nairobi, Kenya, gave the ICT4D community an opportunity to explore how digital solutions are enabling the achievement of these goals. The 2017 conference will focus on harnessing the power of data to accelerate progress toward the SDGs and increase the impact of our programs.
Share your ICT4D experience, showcase your work, learn from your colleagues, and engage in a cross-sector discussion regarding implementation challenges and best practices. This year’s conference offers a unique, hands-on opportunity to explore how people around the world are using ICT4D to:
- enhance program quality
- improve decision-making
- increase impact and
- accelerate progress toward the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Speaking, exhibiting, sponsoring, and attending the conference are all great ways to demonstrate your commitment to the strategic use of technology in international development and humanitarian relief efforts.
