The “ESCAP/DESA Roundtable on ICT Access and e-Government for Achieving the MDGs” in Asia and the Pacific had the objective to promote inclusive economic and social development in the region, through Increased sharing of knowledge among ESCAP member States on ICT policy options, strategies and best practices for achieving development goals.

While a number of ICT applications and initiatives have been implemented among the countries in Asia and the Pacific, there have been limited efforts to analyze existing national ICT policies which provide a national framework of ICT development and share good practices and lessons learned on how to expand ICT access and maximize the use of ICT services and facilities at the regional level.

The roundtable started with a plenary on the background of the ESCAP Activities on Strengthening ICT policies and applications to achieve MDG and WSIS goals in Asia and the Pacific to promote inclusive economic and social development, in particular reporting of the previous sub-regional meetings which were held in October 2009, including milestones of the project entitled “Strengthening ICT policies and applications to achieve MDG and WSIS goals in Asia and the Pacific”, which is funded by the Korea-ESCAP Cooperation Fund. More information about this roundtable can be found below.
