This seminar will present the outcome of a study on the Uganda’s journey towards Knowledge Societies and the role of digitally-transformed government along this journey, conducted as part of the joint Government Fellowship programme by UNU-EGOV and UNESCO-IFAP. The study:
The recommendations will be used as inputs to the process of updating the Ugandan National ICT Policy, National e-Government Strategy and various sectoral policies due for revision around 2017. The recommendations are also expected to lead to the consolidation of various ICT-related policies into policy for Knowledge Societies, to serve as a uniform platform for sectoral and national development planning. In turn, such consolidation will help Uganda fulfil its international commitment towards the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.
