Policies of United Nations System Organizations Towards the Use of Open Source Software (OSS) for Development

This report is the second of a two-part review undertaken by the Joint Inspection Unit (JIU) on the policies of United Nations system organizations regarding the use of OSS. The main focus of this second report is to examine the extent to which, in the wider framework of applying ICT for development, the use of OSS can foster the achievement of some of the Millennium Development Goals.
