There has not been a time when technology has had a more profound impact on international development and humanitarian aid programs.
Development, humanitarian, data, and technology experts from public, private and civil society explore vital themes around the application of digital innovations and the responsible use of data–in a learning environment that is both inspiring and informative.
Our inclusive webinars are designed to provide practical and actionable advice to representatives of non-governmental organizations (NGOs), civil society and community-based organizations, private sector companies, multilateral and governmental agencies, academic and research institutions, aid and development funding organizations.
In particular, the following professionals benefit from attending: program managers, field officers, IT/data managers, and senior technical advisors from disciplines ranging from agriculture, health, education, conservation, water security, humanitarian response and resilience, to information and communications technology, data management, GIS/mapping, AI and machine learning, and inclusive financial services.
The one-hour ICT4D webinars feature short case studies or enlightening talks, followed by interactive Q&A sessions, encouraging the audience to post questions.
To suggest a theme or recommend a speaker for a future ICT4D webinar, please email Sonja Ruetzel, ICT4D Conference Manager.
