Inclusive Digital Transformation for the Achievement of the SDGs and the SAMOA Pathway in SIDS
The past two years have shown that digital transformation is no longer optional. It is a central tool for public service delivery, citizen engagement, and catalysing new industries and opportunities. Digital is a key enabler for development in Small Island Developing States, with a crucial role in building their resilience and economic recovery. This self-paced course was developed as part of the UNDP SIDS offer Rising up for SIDS, as a collaboration of UNDP, UNCDF and ITU and provides an introduction for civil servants and other stakeholders to assist them in shaping an inclusive, whole-of-government approach to digital transformation in SIDS. The course is framed around the UNDP Digital Transformation Framework and its five pillars: government, infrastructure, regulation, business, and people. The course offers data and case studies on digital transformation in SIDS and features analytical tools from UNDP and UNCDF and extensive links to additional resources.
