The Global Digital Development Forum on May 6th, 2020 is co-organized by USAID, Chemonics, Digital Impact Alliance, IntraHealth International, TechChange, and Save the Children. 

This virtual ICT4D conference will be a global transformative peer-learning digital development event specifically designed to include practitioners from low- and middle-income countries. It will feature:

  • A headlining keynote presentation from USAID and multiple interactive online sessions led by trained facilitators

  • Sessions spanning the globe from 6:00 GMT to 22:00 GMT featuring your peers at the cutting edge of technology and development in Asia, Africa, Europe, and Americas

  • Free participation in engaging compelling, relevant sessions on TechChange’s robust online learning platform

  • Inspiring experiences and results from innovative projects that achieve development goals with new and emerging technologies.

Please RSVP now to be considered for participation and pay special attention to the relevance section. Hundreds of participants will join this special online event from dozens of countries, however, we still have capacity limits to ensure a great conference and you don’t want to miss out.

This forum will be a highly participatory, community-driven event and we are actively seeking practitioners from around the world with a wide range of ideas, experiences, and backgrounds to lead each type of session. Special consideration will be given to sessions led by LMIC practitioners.

Please submit your session ideas now for consideration. The deadline for submission is Friday, April 3, 2020.
