Event Description

Webinar Title:“ICT as an Enabler for Private Sector Development: Its Implications for Telecentres”

NetAfrica, in partnership with Telecentre.org Foundation and Intel, is organizing a webinar entitled “ICT as an Enabler for Private Sector Development: Its Implications for Telecentres” to be held on October 3 from 3pm-4pm Nairobi time (UTC/GMT+3). To check for local time, click here.

Mr. Torbjorn Fredriksson, Officer in Charge of the Science, Technology and ICT Branch of the Division on Technology and Logistics at the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), will serve as the resource person.

In his presentation, Mr Fredriksson will look at how countries can leverage information and communication technologies (ICTs) as a tool to promote private sector development (PSD). Drawing on UNCTAD’s Information Economy Report 2011, he will highlight some key global trends, discuss policy implications and especially consider the role of telecentres in view of an evolving ICT landscape, characterized by growing reliance on mobile solutions.

This webinar is under the eSpeak Series which seeks to engage stakeholders in discussion and sharing of knowledge and ideas that will enable them to come up with concrete identifiable actions towards developing stronger and sustainable telecentres. This will be the first of its kind for the African region.
Summary:
NetAfrica is a PanAfrican telecentre network with a vision of sustainable African network of telecentres with value to all communities. This will be the first webinar in a planned series of various webinars to be organised by NetAfrica with the support of Telecentre.org Foundation and Intel. We invite all telecentre network leaders and staff from Africa and the rest of the world to actively participate and help promote better and resilient telecentres for the future.

Webinar Goals:
• Determine the role of ICTs for private sector development
• Highlight and discuss the implications of ICT to telecentre development, especially emerging ICTs
• Create a platform for telecentre practitioners and development experts to interact and engage

Webinar Outcomes:
• More informed private sector development experts on the potential of ICTs in their work
• Improved use and deployment of ICT solutions by grassroots telecentres
• Improved dialogue between development experts and telecentres
