During the month of May 2016 ( 16-19 May) Accenture, CRS, Hewlett Packard enterprise, Nethope and Oxfam will organize an ICT4D conference in Nairobi, Kenya round " Building Resilience through Innovation".

At the 2016 conference we will focus on:

  • ICT solutions that are having significant impact in development—with attention given to those solutions that integrate a number of the ICT building blocks identified in the SDG ICT Playbook: power, mobile devices, connectivity, cloud computing, visualization and analytics, social media, digital services, the internet of things, smart systems, and 3D printing.
  • Government ICT strategies, their alignment with the SDGs, progress towards their implementation, and challenges and experiences to date.
  • The intersection between government ICT strategies and the goals and strategies of private sector businesses and civil society organizations operating in the same geographies.
  • The structure of cross-sector partnerships and business models for ICT solution delivery that have shown promising results.
