UN APCICT has developed Module 10 on ICT, Climate Change & Green Growth as part of the Academy of ICT Essentials for Government Leaders (Academy), and the Monitoring & Evaluation Toolkit for the Academy.
UN APCICT launches two new publications - “ICT, Climate Change & Green Growth” and “Monitoring & Evaluation Toolkit”. The publications are the latest additions to the “Academy of ICT Essentials for Government Leaders (Academy)”.
Updated first eight editions of APCICT’s ICTD Briefing Note Series. The publications, based on the curriculum of APCICT’s “Academy of ICT Essentials for Government Leaders Programme” (Academy), are designed to provide senior government officials with concise yet detailed analysis of ICT for development related issues and topics.

The first issue of the Asian and Pacific Training Centre for Information and Communication Technology for Development’s (APCICT) ICTD Case Study Series, ICT Human Capacity Building for Development discusses the experiences of ICTD practitioners who have partnered with APCICT to roll-out the “Academy of ICT Essentials for Government Leaders” (Academy). The Academy, APCICT’s flagship programme, is designed to equip government officials and policymakers with the necessary skills and knowledge to leverage ICT solutions for socio-economic development.
Today, few will question the capacity of ICTs to serve as enablers of sustainable development that the world community has agreed to work towards by the target year 2030. However, although this capacity of ICTs as enablers has been recognized, there remains fuzziness about the linkage between ICTs and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This module addresses the SDGs through the prism of ICTs.
This second issue of ICT World Today examines the role ICTs play in promoting environmental sustainability, including ways in which ICTs are being used to address climate change mitigation and adaptation.
ICT World Today is supported by APCICT.
Academy of ICT Essentials for Government Leaders: South Asia Sub-Regional Workshop - Training Materials
This e-primer looks at how the knowledge-based economy has impacted small and medium enterprises (SMEs); explores why so few SMEs have adopted information and communications technology (ICT) and why SMEs should adopt ICT; and provides some policy recommendations for promoting SME adoption of ICT.
In an effort to measure and bridge the digital divide, several different types of indicators have been developed to measure the readiness of a country to adopt information and communication technology (ICT). Many of these indicators measure the extent to which the technology has been adopted within the target population. While some indicators recognize the importance of computer skills and e-literacy, there has been minimal effort to develop a multi-factor set of indicators to measure ICT human resource capacity.
