ICT4D Webinar Series

There has not been a time when technology has had a more profound impact on international development and humanitarian aid programs.

This webinar series features experts from public, private and civil society to discuss vital themes around the use of information and communication technology for development (ICT4D).

Speakers and partners from past and future ICT4D Conferences share their practical knowledge, present new and relevant technologies, answer questions, and engage in a learning environment that is both innovative and informative.

This inclusive webinar series is designed to provide cutting edge and practical information that is easily accessible at no cost to representatives of non-governmental organizations (NGOs), civil society and community-based organizations, private sector companies, multilateral and governmental agencies, academic and research institutions, development banks, and 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 and disaster management to information and communications technology, data management, GIS/mapping, and financial services.

The ICT4D webinars will feature short case studies and interactive Q&A sessions that will last for one hour.
