2022 digis

Digital ecosystems are the stakeholders, systems, and enabling environment that together empower people and communities to use digital technology to access services, engage with each other, or pursue economic opportunities. Digital ecosystems hold immense potential to help people live more free and prosperous lives.

Digital ecosystems can help drive economic empowerment and financial inclusion, advance national security, support accountability and transparency in governance, and make development and humanitarian assistance more efficient and effective.

2022 Digital Development Awards – The Digis!

Have you used digital technology to promote locally led development? Have you safeguarded digital ecosystems? Are you working on  facilitating access to digital infrastructure for marginalized populations? Or securing internet freedom and human rights?
