National Conference 2018: July 17-19, 2018

Flier2018-Site

Preamble:

While IT deployment and development in Nigeria continues to increase, experiences and benefits of IT and the Internet have largely not been widespread. The most socially and economically excluded such as women, individuals living with disabilities, MSMEs, young people, the poor, the rural populace as a whole are largely digitally excluded. In today’s 21st century world, access to the internet, digital devices, and technical skills is however essential for full participation in the society and economy. Despite advances the fact that many are unable to realize their potential in the digital world is a big obstacle to development.

Digital activity has increased but digital impact lags behind. Irrespective of how impressive the goals and level of investment, IT initiatives in the absence of inclusion continue to reinforce inequalities and hinder overall tech enabled development. Improving inclusion is not an end in itself, but is required most critically at this time to ensure leverage on IT to significantly improve healthcare, poverty reduction, job creation, education, governance and food security.

With a focus on relevance and enabling valued driven impact, the conference will address practical realities and needs, best practices, emerging issues, innovation, stakeholder roles and future sustainability. Digital inclusion is particularly important as the urgent need to diversify the economy away from dependence on oil and improve economic performance becomes more important. Join NCS in developing and setting the national digital inclusion agenda.
