Global Launch of 2021 IDES Data (3rd edition) – Africa-Europe-US


Setting priories and measuring over time the digital transformation of a country

To support governments in their country’s digital transformation, UNCDF developed a policy tool: the Inclusive Digital Economies Scorecard (IDES). It identifies the key market constraints and helps set the right priorities with public and private stakeholders in each country to foster a digital economy that leaves no one behind.

In this webinar, you will learn more how the IDES is helping countries set priorities and measure over time the progress made in the digital transformation of their economies and its inclusiveness.

In this session, you will hear Preeti Sinha, Executive Secretary UNCDF, Jean Van Wetter Managing Director Enabel, and Dr. Aminah Zawedde, Permanent Secretary Ministry of ICT Uganda who will discuss the importance of data to make informed decisions. In the panel, Dr. Aminah Zawedde will share how Uganda is using the tool to accompany its transformation. A specific focus will be given during the event on bringing women at the center of the digital transformation journey by Laura Munoz, UNCDF.
