Closing the Digital Innovation Gap
Countries can benefit from cutting-edge approaches to digital innovation, which entail developing locally appropriate capabilities through experimentation and flagship initiatives to nurture an enabling digital environment.
The new Innovation and Entrepreneurship Alliance for Digital Development initiated will build critical local enablers to lead in the changing digital environment. The Alliance will fast-track five strategic objectives to accelerate countries’ journey towards an innovation-driven digital economy.
The Alliance will help strengthen countries’ capabilities to integrate ICT innovation into national development
agendas and build human and institutional capabilities at the country level where it is most relevant and sustainable.
This session will introduce the Innovation and Entrepreneurship and will serve as an inspirational session to discuss the what, why and how of the Alliance. This will be followed by a Q&A from the audience about the Alliance.
