This APDIP e-Note introduces the concept of pro-poor e-governance; gives two examples of e-governance projects targeted at poor and vulnerable groups; and provides a comprehensive approach to pro-poor e-governance comprised of seven building blocks.

APDIP e-Note 20 - Government Interoperability Frameworks in an Open Standards Environment: A comparative review

his APDIP e-Note intends to give a brief introduction to government interoperability frameworks (GIFs), explain how they are classified and provide details of their common features. It also discusses the importance of open standards in GIFs and why governments should consider open standards seriously when designing or evaluating their GIFs.

High Impact, Pro-Poor e-Governance Applications: Identifying 'Killer Applications' and Best Practice Models of e-Governance through Community e-Centers in the Philippines

The purpose of the study is to find a way to identify services that genuinely make a difference to people in their interactions with Governments. The expected outcome is increased impact and utilization of e-governance and e-government services in the Philippines and Asia-Pacific over the longer term. This study is a collaboration between the Commission of ICT in the Philippines, UNDP Philippines and UNDP-APDIP.

e-Government Interoperability: A Review of Government Interoperability Frameworks in Selected Countries

The Review provides a comparative analysis of eight existing GIFs of Australia, Brazil, Denmark, the European Union, Germany, Malaysia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. It serves as a useful resource for government officials, the corporate sector and civil society involved in the development or revision of a GIF. This Review focuses on how GIFs in different countries were developed, the principles that animate them, the technical standards they mandated and/or recommend, the way these GIFs are managed, and the implementation and compliance mechanisms they established.

e-Government Interoperability: Guide

The Guide is a practical tool for technical officials and policy makers in governments who plan to draft or revise a GIF to ensure e-government interoperability among national government agencies. It is a comprehensive guide giving details on the approaches and principles of a GIF, and the standards categories and selection processes. It provides a step-by-step guide to developing and revising a GIF, illustrated with relevant case studies.

e-Government Interoperability: Overview

The Overview introduces and guides policy makers to the what, who, why and how of e-government interoperability. Through a question-and-answer format, the publication walks its readers through the vision, rationale and value of a Government Interoperability Framework (GIF) and a National Enterprise Architecture (NEA). It answers some fundamental questions such as what are the resources required, who should be involved and what are the key factors for its successful development and operationalization. It also looks at open standards and what they have to do with GIF.

e-Government Interoperability

This e-primer walks its readers through the vision and value of e-government interoperability and the steps required to achieve effective interoperability. It also answers some fundamental questions such as why government interoperability frameworks should be developed; who should be involved; how are they produced and revised; and what are the key factors for their successful development and operationalization.

Towards a Model for Implementing Local E-government in Uganda

In the developing countries, the technical and non-technical infrastructures are not as mature as those of developed countries. Requirements for local e-government also differ from those at the national level due to differences in technical, social and political factors, necessitating customized local e-government implementation models. In developing countries, local e-government implementation is also constrained by lack of information about its requirements, with the possible risk of duplication of national experiences and knowledge.
