Virtual Events in 2020

During the global health crisis surrounding COVID-19, the ICT4D Conference is offering regular virtual events and online content. Following an email survey in April our audience has identified the following themes for upcoming content:

 

1. ICT for COVID-19 Preparedness & Response

Detailed and timely data and particularly low-cost/ mobile technology are critical to effectively fight COVID-19. Over the next months, our events will share practical insights on disease tracking, digital innovations for better health supply chain management, mobile WASH and health tools. And you will hear how emerging technologies, such as AI, biometrics, GIS mapping, Digital ID, can be harnessed in the COVID-19 global response.

April 2020 Survey taken by 192 registered ICT4D Conference participants to help us identify virtual ICT4D content we should prioritize in online events.

2. Digitization of Services & Digital Literacy

As organizations are adapting their operations to deal with mobility constraints, the use of digital solutions has skyrocketed over the past months. Not only are we discussing how to support those digitization efforts, but also focus on the risks and challenges associated, especially around responsible use of data, information security, protection, financial inclusion, information literacy, safeguarding, diversity and disability inclusion, and digital citizenship.
