Aligning ICT and E-Government Strategies with National Development Strategies

This session will focus on how governments can better incorporate ICT and e-government strategies within their National Development Strategies to reap the benefits of these technologies in building resilience and sustainable development.

Representatives of governments and other stakeholders will present best practices and challenges within their spheres of influence. This will be followed by responses from other speakers in the panel, and an interactive dialogue among meeting participants.

The relevant discussion and outcomes arising from this meeting may be included in the final publication of the 2018 UN E-Government Survey. The outcome of the meeting is also expected to feed into the 2018 HLPF with overall theme “Transformation towards sustainable and resilient societies“.
