International Policy Dialogue
“Mainstreaming ICTs for Development:
the Key Role of the Private Sector”


The International Policy Dialogue will contribute to the second phase of the World Summit on Information Society (WSIS) in Tunis by stressing the growing importance of mainstreaming ICTs for Development and the crucial role of the private sector to tap the full potential of information and communications technologies.

Aim of the conference is to provide a significant input to the global ICTs for Development debate, facilitating the identification of those best practices comprising a road map towards favourable conditions for mainstreaming ICTs for Development efforts. Within this context, the conference will focus on two main issues: the policy framework for private sector investment on the one hand and the relevance of ICTs in achieving the ambitious goals set by the international community in the Millennium Declaration on the other.

The International Policy Dialogue “Mainstreaming ICTs for Development: the Key Role of the Private Sector” will be convened by the Development Policy Forum of InWEnt, Capacity Building International, Germany, in cooperation with the German Federal Government, represented by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), in collaboration with the Federal Foreign Office (AA) and the Federal Ministry of Economics and Labour (BMWA).
